  Peggy's Got 

  The Blues

 

 

 

Peggy Lee – a dazzling icon of the jazz scene in the 40’s and 50’s was an enduring star who had great success throughout her career and went on to perform until she was well into her 70’s but though her life was full of many highs as a performer, she had more than her fair share of lows in her personal life.  My new show, Peggy's Got the Blues, explores, through the medium of Lee's more blues inspired repertoire, the adversities that Lee overcame. 

Lee’s voice was very distinctive – it was understated but full of subtlety with a breathy tone that became her trademark – significantly enhanced by her liking for cigarettes! She made over 50 albums covering many different styles of music giving them all her unique treatment – it seemed she could turn her voice to anything – however, she had an innate blues style and Peggy’s Got the Blues celebrates that style.  The songs chosen explore wistfulness, irony, joyful memories, regret and out and out defiance!

Peggy's Got the Blues gigs:

         21st April 2024 - Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club      SOLD OUT
