It takes a lot of courage and even more ability to dare to sing the music of ones idols. The young British pop singer Jasmine van den Bogaerde alias Birdy became famous for singing cover versions of well-known hits, accompanying herself on the piano in her own simple, yet moving interpretations. Patricia Kaas has devoted herself to the sublime repertoire of the legendary Edith Piaf. Although both singers come from different generations and music traditions, they have this in common: their clear and emotional voices, which are full of passion even at their softest. We can expect to enjoy an evening of rich and varied timbres.
