We May Never Meet Again: The Music Of Amy Winehouse
Returning to Canberra after a sold-out first tour in July, WE MAY NEVER MEET AGAIN brings the music of Amy Winehouse back to the Street Theatre in an electrifying show.
Led by ANU alumnus Joe McEvilly, Melbourne nine-piece Movement 9 join forces with the phenomenal voice of Elly Poletti to present a new perspective on the music of Amy Winehouse.
Since their last visit to Canberra, the project has gone from strength to strength, selling out shows at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club and supporting Clare Bowditch and the Black Sorrows for Monash WinterFest.
WE MAY NEVER MEET AGAIN pays tribute to Winehouse's lifelong love of jazz through a suite of twisted and reimagined arrangements, transporting her music from the radio to the smoky clubs where her jazz idols used to play.
Hear the soul-drenched voice of Elly Poletti bring a new life to songs like "Back to Black", "Tears Dry On Their Own", and "In My Bed". Six horns share the stage with her, weaving a backdrop of jazz harmonies and soul hits, comments and countermelodies.
Captivating and passionate, WE MAY NEVER MEET AGAIN offers a new look at Amy Winehouse's lasting musical legacy.
Don't miss this show as it returns to Canberra for one night only. Book early to avoid disappointment.
