Details

Nous vous proposons un voyage musical à travers les années avec chanteuse-guitariste, Helene Attia (et Dave Miotke, pianiste-accordéoniste). Helene nous chantera les chansons françaises d'Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Josephine Baker et Charles Trenet, ainsi que les chansons plus récentes de Claude Nougaro, Michel Fugain, Julien Clerc, Mauranne et Francis Cabrel. Pour écouter les chansons d’Helene Attia, visitez http://www.heleneattia.com .

Pour le potluck: Merci d'apporter quelque chose à manger et à boire, à partager entre tout le monde.

Si vous pouvez bientôt faire vos RSVPs, ça m'aidera beaucoup car il nous faut un certain nombre de personnes pour faire le concert et puis pour garder l'accordéoniste.

Just in time for Bastille Day, come take a musical trip across the years with singer-guitarist Helene Attia (and Dave Miotke, pianist-accordionist). Helene will sing, in French, the songs of Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Josephine Baker, and Charles Trenet, as well as more recent songs of Claude Nougaro, Michel Fugain, Julien Clerc, Mauranne, and Francis Cabrel. To listen to Helene Attia's songs, visit http://www.heleneattia.com .

For the potluck: Please bring something to eat and drink to share with everyone.

If you can RSVP soon, it will help me a lot because we need a certain number of people in order to have the concert and keep the accordionist.

Here is Helene's latest review, from the book The Jazz Singers, by Scott Yannow (June, 2009):

"Helene Attia is an eclectic singer and songwriter, based in Northern California, who has a real feeling for French songs and for swinging jazz. She sings in English, French, Italian and Portuguese on her CD, The Eyes of Love (H.A. 3731), displaying sensuality, a strong wit and such versatility that she is beyond category, an asset in an over-categorized world."
