We believe, ‘Every Song Tells a Story’
How many times have you heard a song on the radio or being performed live and been transported back to that time or have been reminded of a special moment in your life through the lyrics of a song.
This is what Calli aims to achieve with each performance…We are performing a number of concerts celebrating the music of Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. The first is at the Theatr Clwyd, North Wales on Friday 8 December 2017 followed by a return visit to the Floral Pavilion Blue Lounge on Friday 9 February 2018. Both are cabaret seating venues and we are excited at performing the songs of these great legendary songwriters in these wonderful venues. The ‘mini tour’ concludes on 14 April at the Capstone Theatre Liverpool
With Special Guests, Brian Saxophone Jones and Kate O’Brien (violin), the show is not to be missed and a must for all Dylan and Cohen fans. ( See Video and record Sections clips from the Floral show in June 2017
Calli provides her distinctive emotional vocal to a collection of folk and popular standards and gives her own interpretation of classics like ‘Jolene’, ‘Aint No Sunshine’, ‘Songbird’ as well as jazz classics which include ‘Cry Me a River’, ‘Summertime’ and many more.
A dynamic performer with a wealth of experience in the world of music, she has been a lead vocalist for several bands of varying styles from folk and cabaret to rock. This varied experience has encouraged the development of her distinctive voice. Her Greek heritage also enables her to add an international feel to some of the songs.
Multi talented musicians Mark and Mike provide professional accompaniment and backing vocals which support Calli’s stunning voice.
Mike is a classically trained pianist and also plays guitar and cello. He provides a solid base to the performances with his sensitive piano interpretations and expressive rhythm guitar.
Mark has been performing with Calli as a duo for many years and produced her last studio album. Like Mike, he is an intuitive instrumentalist who perfectly complements Calli’s voice and Mike’s guitar and piano.
Calli says “I am lucky to have two fantastic musicians who are ‘in tune’ with each other and are able to pick up songs instantly. We are building a repertoire of songs which we think people will love to hear, songs which we have reinterpreted in our own style”
The Trio use no backing tracks and rely solely on playing live instrumentation.
‘Calli’ is the perfect choice for your corporate, intimate dinner or cabaret concert settings. For recommendations please read our Testimonials page.
