Description

Brand-new show from the award-winning, five-star Glaswegian chanteuse. With her heart-melting, smoky, evocative voice, Christine cherry-picks some of the most celebrated songs and engrossing stories from the Jazz Age – the era of Prohibition, women's suffrage, radio, flappers, vamps, F Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Charlie Chaplin, Charles Lindbergh and Bessie Smith. A decade of heroes and villains; of sex scandals; literary giants and criminal low lives – all beautifully bound in the seductive rhythms of jazz. 'She is becoming the stuff of Fringe legend' (BroadwayBaby.com). ***** (Scotsman). ***** (Herald).

Great voice singing some superb music, and fascinating to have it all put in context with just the right mix of humour and history.

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 86 days ago

Christine Bovill is a Scottish gem. All the talent of the cabaret divas found at the Big Four, yet none of the airs and graces. This lovingly-put-together hour, blending 1920s American song with reflections on social and cultural history, ought to win hearts – just like her previous Fringe shows,...

Southside Advertiser (4/5 stars) 91 days ago

Christine gives us a brief, but interesting, overview of the decade in chronological order and gives us some of the “important” songs that defined these times that were in history bookmarked in between two great tragedies –“The Great War” and the 1929 Stock-market Crash.
