Saturday 6 APRIL
“She’s the first girl I’ve seen who makes a squeeze box look sexy!” – Elaine Paige
This concert will feature thumpin French Cajan tunes alongside fresh interpretations of classics by Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Charles Trenet. This will be the first series of concerts for Emma in Australia since relocating to London in 2015, where she holds a residency in London’s Piccadilly Circus at the lucrative Brasserie Zedel.
Since the release of her debut album La Musique (“a total triumph on so many levels” Van Dyke Parks) French/Australian singer Emma Hamilton toured the world not only opening for guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel, but enticing audiences with her own blend of French and jazz inspired music. Emma’s raspy enveloping voice transports you to another era while her vocals dance and play with her undeniably catchy, fresh songs, right through to French classics (she is half French!) which she sings with luscious authenticity and passion.
She is also a masterful accordionist and pianist and delights audiences with her quirky solos and amusing tales. Emma will be accompanied by the marvellous George Washingmachine on fiddle and a rocking band as they guide you through the streets of Paris. Ross Hamilton on Drums and Howard Cairns on Bass.
