Songbird, Eva Cassidy touched the hearts and lives of so many but ironically her fame rose upon her death.
An artist that could not be pigeon holed into one genre, Miss Cassidy took it upon herself to interpret an array of songs from different genres in the form of Jazz, Blues, Pop, soul, gospel & Folk. Songs that she related to, songs that she believed in and songs that she made her own.
The lead singers of band ‘Soul Chic’ Nardia and Georga whilst having many influences have been particularly taken by Eva Cassidy’s story.
Through their delectable unique voice blend they have mastered the art of harmonies and have since performed as a harmony duo around Australia and Europe. Inspired by Eva they too explore a variety of different genres with songs that they relate to, songs that they believe in and songs they make their own..
On this night Soul Chic will perform an array of their favourite Eva Cassidy tunes adapted with their own twist. A powerful and moving performance, this show cannot be missed!
The band have delicately arranged their favourite Eva Cassidy songs and the show is interwoven with very small snippets of life of Eva Cassidy…
