In celebration of mothers of all stripes — birth moms, adopted moms, step moms, mother figures, grandmothers, moms-to-be, mums, mamas, and more — happy Mother’s Day to you all. We acknowledge the hard work you do, and the contribution you make, Every Day.

With a live four-piece band Edie will perform many of the French cabaret singer’s soulful and emotional numbers… songs of enduring popularity, interwoven with Edie’s engaging style of audience-interaction, and interpretation of the French lyrics. She’ll also be mixing in some songs and stories that fit alongside Piaf’s oeuvre – inspired by a recent trip to Paris and meandering the city’s streets.”
