Clayson sings Chanson

CLAYSON SINGS CHANSON has been on the road since 2011, initially to tie-in with the publication of Alan Clayson’s Jacques Brel biography, La Vie Bohème.

Recent media coverage has been fulsome with phrases like ‘mesmerising’, ‘a man possessed’, ‘a wonderful evening by a master raconteur at the top of his game’.

Further comment includes :

‘His delivery and performance style has led to a deserved cult status’ (Time Out);

‘Definitely more than a performance—an experience!’ (New York Village Voice);

‘Hugely entertaining. Jacques would have approved’ (Rock ‘N’ Reel);

‘Everything here is equal to the doomed romanticism that was Brel’s trademark’ (Record Collector);

‘A complex emotional landscape of understated dynamics and dark aesthetics’ (Folk on Tap);

‘Simply incredible’ (Newbury Weekly News).

With thoroughly diverting supporting programme by Rob Boughton – gifted songwriter, veteran record producer and breathtaking vocalist – the show is prefaced by an explanatory talk that is as entertaining as it is educational.

As well as works by Brel, Charles Aznavour, Scott Walker and other chansonniers, Gallic and British, Clayson and keyboard player Andy Lavery venture into curious but connected realms.

Prefaced by an explanatory talk that is as entertaining as it is educational this show will appeal to both chanson devotees, those interested generally in Gallic culture – and anyone who wants to be merely entertained.

In parenthesis, Alan Clayson fronts the legendary Alan Clayson and the Argonauts, and has become ‘one of the more extraordinary figures to emerge from rock ’n’ roll’ (The Independent).
