Doors 7pm | Start 8pm
A night of classic cabaret centred around the songs of Edith Piaf performed in the spirit of French chanson and the grand Berlin-Weimar era by singer Hersh Dagmarr and pianist Karen Newby. Expect some drama, thrill, glamour and timeless romance with tunes by “la Môme Piaf” but also Kurt Weill, Marlene Dietrich, the Pet Shop boys and many others…
‘’Dagmarr evokes an unfettered and elegant decadence unfelt since Moulin Rouge” – Matt Katz-Bohen, Blondie, Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum.
“The stellar Dagmarr’s Kabarett . A French singer and a British classic pianist giving us pure cabaret to sing us into the night” – Patrick Cash, QX Magazine.
“Hersh Dagmarr is a fabulous artist and an a great singer! Check him out!” – Mark Moore , S’Express
Hersh Dagmarr is a London-based singer/songwriter and a cabaret artist. His visceral inspiration from the grand german kabarett era mixed with his own background as a jazz singer and experience as a French club kid from the noughties evolved into a unique blend of expressionist and theatrical avant-pop.
“My interest in music is quite polar. It’s equally coming from a faraway past and a rather distant future. Like some kind of haunting past life.”
Besides his own music production, Dagmarr regularly hosts cabaret shows in which, accompanied by pianist extraordinaire Karen Newby, he performs classic tunes from the global cabaret songbook with an emphasis on Kurt Weill’s repertoire.
Karen began playing the piano at the age of 4 and working as a professional musician 10 years later.
After graduating from Trinity College of Music, London, she has worked extensively both in the UK and abroad, in 5 star hotels including residencies at the Ritz and the Park Lane Intercontinental in London, and on cruise ships, both as solo piano/vocalist and musical director.
Karen is equally at home whether accompanying classical instrumental and vocal recitals, jazz, cabaret or musical theatre. She is an accompanist at Bird College of musical theatre. She is also much in demand as a teacher and musical arranger.
