Sophie Solomon in concert
Saturday, 29 February
Crazy Coqs, London
Charismatic violin virtuoso and songwriter Sophie Solomon (1995, History and Modern Languages) – the leading klezmer violinist of her generation – invites you to an intimate evening of quirky songs of the East from her latest album Stop the Parade, produced with long-time collaborator Marius de Vries (Rufus Wainwright, Bjork, Bowie). Sophie sings a barbed wire love song, a spy leaves messages in a dropbox, a fantastical dictator speaks from his deathbed, a Nino-Rota-esque waltz is danced for the cryogenically frozen, a political prisoner writes home to his lover.
Featuring her incredible 5-piece live band hot off the road with Divine Comedy, Paloma Faith, Rae Morris & more, this is a rare and unmissable chance to experience Sophie’s electric energy on stage.
