Eddi Reader Songs for Robert Burns

Acclaimed Scottish singer Eddi Reader brings her Australian tour to  QPAC’s Concert Hall for one-night only Thursday 16 March.  Renowned as a vocalist adorned by her peers, critics and a devoted global audience Reader has recently released The Best of Eddi Reader a career spanning a double album compilation that collects thirty of her most consistently beautiful, often deeply personal and intimate songs. Featuring material from across Eddi’s remarkable 30 year recording career the new album includes the charming acoustic pop of 1988’s beloved chart topper Perfect (with Fairground Attraction), right up to her remarkable 2015 versions of the standard Moon River and Amy Winehouse’s Love Is A Losing Game.  For this tour, which sees Reader and her four piece band combining festival appearances with her own shows, Reader will perform songs from across her enduring career. This will include songs from what some consider her finest achievement – the songs from her 2003 album The Songs of Robert Burns, a timeless interpretation showcasing the poems of Scotland’s national bard, an album that gained her an MBE for outstanding contributions to the arts. That rare award complements 3 Brit Awards and a host of other accolades generated by a stellar and deeply respected career. An extended version of the album was recently re-released to mark Burn’s 250th birthday.

Paris Combo

The seductively swinging and sophisticated, Paris Combo plays at QPAC’s Concert Hall for the first time ever for one-night only on Monday 20 March.

After sold out shows in Australia in 2015, the fun-loving quintet fronted by the charismatic Belle du Berry perform their favourite songs as well as tracks from their new album Tako Tsubo.  With six albums and two decades spent criss-crossing the globe, playing to enthusiastic audiences from Sydney to San Francisco, Berlin to Beijing; France’s Paris Combo have garnered critical acclaim and an immense following for their unique melange of colourful cabaret, elegant jazz, gypsy swing, and sassy alterna-pop.

Paris Combo’s new record leads audiences through a deliciously varied collection of musical atmospheres, ranging from the intimacy of the live combo to more lush orchestral settings and beautiful 60’s retro ala Bacharach with psychedelic overtones.

This swinging quintet have an ability to create unique cosmopolitan sounds that makes them one of the most piquant and intriguing groups on the international music scene. Belle du Berry (Vocals), Potzi (Guitar), François Jeannin (Drums/Vocals), David Lewis (Trumpet/Piano) and Benoit Dunoyer de Segonzac (Double bass) are an act not to miss…
