Bowie Baroque

by Jan-Hendrik Harley

A classical concert featuring re-imagined versions of David Bowie’s songs as if he were living in Argentina, France and Germany in the 1600’s and 1700’s. The end result is an exquisite classical piece with three distinctly different suites, sending the listener down a Bowie memory lane, but also transporting them through time from 1960’s England all the way to Argentina, France and Germany in the 17th and 18th centuries.
 
With Jan-Hendrik Harley (violin, guitar and direction), Joshua Frank (recorder and guitar), Mariechen Meyer (double bass) and John Pringle (percussion).

The show is about the women in blues, their stories and their songs. The band kicks off in old gin bars of the 1920’s, boogie-woogie in the 50’s and have soul in the 60’s and the 70’s. Famous Blues and Jazz-influenced tunes by singers such as Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Janis Joplin can be enjoyed. Blues-rock fans can also look forward to songs by modern singer-songwriters who were all influenced by die legendary blues women from the past. “Women feel inspired! Men grin from ear to ear. It’s inspirational. It’s sexy. It’s fun”!   With Luna Paige, Simon Orange, Michael Bester, Sean Sanby, Kevin Gibson, Adelia Douw, Zeke le Grange, Marco Maritz and Siya Charles.
