HOWICK singer Cat Simoni will be performing the music of Françoise Hardy at the Rhumbelow Theatre at the Allan Wilson Shellhole in Alan Paton Avenue, Pietermaritzburg at 2 pm and 6.30 pm on October 8.

Françoise Hardy, ooh la-la!, written and directed by Paul Spence, will also be staged at the Rhumbelow Theatre in Cunningham Avenue, Umbilo, Durban, at 8 pm on October 13; 8 pm on October 14 and at 2 pm and 6.30 pm on October 15.

French pop star Françoise Hardy rocketed to fame in the mid-sixties with her intimate voice and sexy singing style — and her guitar, of course!

Her “pillow-talk” songs dominated the radio air-waves and her records were played at dance parties and braais across South Africa.

In addition to the music, Simoni will share the story of the young Sorbonne student, who walked into a Left Bank café with her guitar on a rainy night in Paris in the early sixties. Overnight a singing star was born.

Expect to hear songs like Find Me a Boy, All Over the World, Catch a Falling Star, This Little Heart, Only You Can Do It, In Another Place, the way of love as well as the sexy Je t’aime and Jaques Brel’s Madelaine, Carousel, Marieke Marieke, Amsterdam and If We Only Have Love.

Tickets are R150 (R130 pensioners) at Computicket.

The shows are supper-theatre style, so take along a picnic basket but no drinks. There are cash bars at both venues.
