Collage Arts are thrilled to present live music at Karamel with Ann Liebeck’s Locked Down Sonnets CD launch…
The artists present their new cd Locked Down Sonnets which merges the world of classical forms in music and performance poetry with the world of jazz.
Ann Liebeck vocals
Paul Moylan bass & ukelele
Jonny Liebeck keys
Opera and tango singer Ann Liebeck started writing sonnets about her feelings as lockdown hit the UK at the beginning of the Coronavirus epidemic. Composer Paul Moylan picked up on the dramatic thread of broken dishwashers, panic-buying and genuine grief which led to Paul composing songs to Ann's poems. They communicated by Messenger and WhatsApp and decided to record at distance on their phones with jazz pianist Jonny, Ann's son. And so 'Covid Captivity Cabaret' was born.
This captivating show was performed LIVE for the very first time and recorded specially for Brighton Fringe this Summer. Featuring stunning brand new original material by Ann (vocals), Paul Moylan (double bass) and Jonny Liebeck (piano). Laugh along at Ann's love song to her broken dishwasher, cry with the Covid Madonna and march out of lockdown with the Vaccine Army, a tambourine flourish and clickety clack of castanets! We launch and present the new cd of the show at Karamel.
Doors open at 7pm, and music starts at 8pm.
Karamel has a full air ventilation system installed. We have limited seats available due to current social distancing restriction. Please book a ticket in advance.
