Best of British with Catherine Summers
Saturday 30 October 7.00pm
Catherine Summers and her lively 5-piece pop band present a 2-set show of Britain’s iconic music intertwined with tid-bits of history from the 60s to today’s anthems. From artists such as The Beatles, Elton John, Coldplay, Oasis, Bowie, Ed Sheeran, Kate Bush, Adele, George Michael and Amy Winehouse and more!
Catherine Summers is one of Perth‘s premier vocalists. Her rich honeyed voice, broad vocal range, engaging stage presence and ‘instantly familiar’ candour has given her a title of a ‘delight to watch’.
Catherine, an ex-pat Brit herself (now proud AU citizen), is excited to bring these songs to life alongside a 5-piece band featuring some of Perth’s premiere musicians and wonderfully hosts the night, weaving world-class music with stories of her life growing up in the UK.
If you missed this show at FRINGE FESTIVAL 2020, or even just want a second go-around, make sure that you don’t miss this evening of fun and high-calibre entertainment!
“The ever-reliable Summers displays her lovely intonation and impeccable phrasing with panache – and she looks dressed to thrill.” – Australian Stage
“We talk about Catherine Summers off-air and both feel the same way about her talent! Apart from accurate pitch and beautifully controlled vibrato, she has the style and maturity to carry off the Great American Songbook compositions – just like her US idols.” – Ann Bolton & Ken Turnbull, Jazz Life Main FM 94.9 Victoria
