Peyroux began as an interpreter of 1920s and 1930s standards, but her repertoire soon spread much more widely, and she now has versions of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Tom Waits, Elliot Smith, Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg, as well as her own compositions.
Her last album, The Blue Room, further emphasised her breadth. Begun as a tribute to Ray Charles, the album is a space in which country, soul, blues and jazz all meet, with songs by Randy Newman and John Hartford.
This October, with the help of guitarist Jon Herington and bassist Barak Mori, Peyroux will perform her best-loved tracks, in aid of Keep Me in Your Heart for a While: The Best of Madeleine Peyroux. You'll be treated to a full survey of her career, from her imaginative interpretations to her own compositions.
Despite the enormous acclaim that surrounds her, you can still hear the honesty and spontaneity of a breezy Parisian pavement in her performances. Don't miss the chance to witness Peyroux's magic.
