Event Description

Fifi la Mer and Oliver Wilby present a unique, brand-new show that will take you on a journey through 100 years of French music, from Offenbach to Gainsbourg. The show features the dulcet tones of Fifi on accordion and voice, and the talents of Oliver on clarinet, members of the saxophone family, and accordion. Together they will transport you to “ the city of lights “  with their repertoire of musical gems, and along the way you will get to enjoy tales of mystery, romance, and heartache that we so often associate with Paris. When not touring with this show Oliver Wilby travels the world with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra and the Ray Gelato Giants and Fifi leads the Oh la la!. Quintet . They regularly play at Ronnie Scott’s and have performed around 700 times at the brasserie Zedel in London.

“Wonderful. Great musicians and an authentic touch of French music by two accomplished performers.”

“ Loved it – very well performed. Very interesting in the way it illuminated the historical background to the songs.”

“Entertaining, different, with talented and impressive performers who held the audience’s attention for the duration of the show.
