Music and Musicians, French Chanteuse by Joan Tavolott
When my husband and I visited Paris he wanted to go to see a real cabaret performance with a French chanteuse...but not a real "showy" one with the dancers. He has always loved Edith Piaf. So I did some research on the internet and found a place called Aux Trois Mailletx on Rue Galande. There was someone playing the piano and singing throughout the evening changing every few hours. This young woman was fantastic and sang French songs as well as some American "pop" standards. She was so good we went back a second time to hear her. I sketched this from a short video I had taken of her with my camera.
I wish I could link the video but apparently I would have to upload it to YouTube first and I've never tried that.
