My Tribute to Kirsty MacColl

This event has passed!

FRINGE WORLD 2020 event: Karen J White (performer, singer, songwriter) presents her new show 'My Tribute to Kirsty MacColl'. Karen's two year plus project culminated in two studio albums, a pocket guide to Kirsty and a live show.

Both the albums and show tell stories of love and betrayal, happiness and sadness, innocence and raunchiness through some of the best British music published during the 80s and 90s. Certainly Kirsty had a phenomenal following in the UK and worked both in her own right and with many of the top names of that era.

In Australia perhaps the song she is best known for is her duet with Shane MacGowan of ‘The Pogues’ and their song ‘Fairytale of New York’ which around the globe still finds itself in the top of music charts at Christmas! Karen’s show ‘My Tribute to Kirsty MacColl’ draws on some of Karen’s own favourites from her albums, chosen to showcase Kirsty’s diverse talent and give a roller-coaster ride of great music and songs from the start to the tragic premature end of Kirsty’s short life. Karen’s albums and show tell stories throughout the gamut of emotions, in Karen’s quirky and passionate style.

To quote Karen: “I am not Kirsty MacColl and I don’t set out to try to be her but I do try to deliver the turns, twists and innuendo as Kirsty did. I showcase some well-known and some not-so-well-known songs picking my way along her sometimes bumpy but very successful short career”.
