Kitty Farmer / Holly Arsenault
“To Peggy With Love – Songs from the Peggy Lee Songbook”
Sunday, June 26th
1685 Argyle St.
Pianist Holly Arsenault (‘A Tribute To Nina Simone’- Symphony Nova Scotia, The Coast’s ‘Best Of Halifax’ two-time Jazz Artist Gold Winner) and Singer/Actor Kitty Farmer (Kitty and The Katz/Jack’s Cats) share their love and admiration of the music that Peggy Lee created over her long and ground-breaking career.
From the enigmatic and theatrical “Is That All There Is”, through the sparkling charm of ‘Sweet Happy Life’, to the bluesy swing and playful feminism of “I’m A W.O.M.A.N. “, these two musical veterans each bring a mid-career’s worth of resonance and refinement to an evening of Ms. Lee’s classics.
This is not a biography – it is a celebration in song. And it’s a blast.
