Beyond the Beehive - Amy Winehouse's Musical Mastery returns after a sell-out season
Returning after a sell-out season to The Butterfly Club! What do you know about Amy Winehouse? Over-the-top beehive and eyeliner, addict, rehab-rejecter, member of the 27 Club? Beyond the tabloid coverage, Amy Winehouse was a masterful musician who drew on the rich history of jazz, gospel, soul, 60s girl-groups and hip-hop to create a new kind of music that influenced many who came after her. The show is a celebration of Amy Winehouse's amazing talent and the fascinating story behind the making of her music. After a sell-out season in May, Carol Whitfield and her 4-piece band are back for another round at The Butterfly Club, playing the Winehouse repertoire and giving audiences some insight into the talents of this incredible artist.
After a sell-out season in May last year, Carol Whitfield makes a triumphant return to The Butterfly Club to once again celebrate the incredible talent of Amy Winehouse, taking audiences on a musical journey through her music, influences and legacy.
Ask most people what they know about Amy Winehouse, and they'll mention her addictions, over-the-top beehive and eyeliner, and early death. But beyond the tabloid coverage, Amy Winehouse was a masterful musician whose music drew on the rich history of jazz, Motown, 60s girl-groups, soul and hip hop, and influenced many who came after her.
Backed by a 4-piece band, Carol Whitfield sings the Winehouse repertoire in a tribute to her early influences, her masterpiece album Back to Black, classic covers, and of course her iconic look.
Carol says “The tabloid coverage of Amy Winehouse's personal problems have largely overtaken her enormous musical legacy in the public mind. This show aims to redress the balance, giving audiences a healthy sample of her classic songs and covers.”
On for a limited season, Beyond the Beehive opens on Wednesday 13 February and runs for four performances. Bookings recommended.
