Award winning chanteuse, Christine Bovill has built her reputation on her interpretation of classic 20th century songs, touring internationally with her sell-out shows, PIAF and PARIS. Exactly 10 years ago, she released her debut album, Derby Street, revealing a major talent as a songwriter. Selected as album of the week on Radio Scotland, Christine had her album launch here, at Òran Mór.
To mark the 10 year anniversary of her debut album, Christine will perform an intimate evening of song. Selecting tracks from Derby Street and adding some old favourites, Christine will perform a vibrant and original collection of songs whose origins lie in a tangle of blues, folk, jazz and, of course, chanson francaise…

“It seems to me she has the ability to get behind the words and music and allowed the meaning through — like a traditional storyteller, she gets out of the way and lets the story speak for itself.” Composer, Pat Williams
