"Bovill conveys the pathetic nature of the song with few gestures, her voice carrying all before her, its honeyed subtleties wringing pathos from every line. Forget the ululating gymnastics of The X Factor or The Voice, this is how you sell a song" Culture Northern Ireland
"Bovill is a great storyteller and she brings the songs to life with terrific panache and dramatic flair." The Scotsman
"That moment when you realise you are hearing something that will stay with you for the rest of your life." Sunday Times
Award winning chanteuse, Christine Bovill has built her reputation on her interpretation of classic 20th century songs. With the release of Derby Street and The Sentence That I Serve she revealed a major talent as a songwriter.
The last six years have seen Christine reach new heights as a performer with a massively successful sold-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe. Her self-penned play, Christine Bovill's Piaf toured internationally and received rave reviews from the critics, including a 5 star rating from The Scotsman and the Belfast Telegraph.
In "Christine Bovill's PARIS", she celebrates the Golden Age of French song, performing some of the most celebrated works of Piaf, Brel, Barbara, Aznavour and more, interspersed with wonderful anecdotes from the age.
