Women’s History Month Trilogy #2: You Give Me Fever – The Peggy Lee Songbook w/ Barbara Rosene
Norma Deloris Egstrom, known professionally as Peggy Lee, was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer, and actress, over a career spanning seven decades. She helped redefine what it meant to be a female singer, and her quietly captivating voice continues to resonate with audiences of all ages.
The music of Peggy Lee will be brought to life by vocalist Barbara Rosene who has built an unequalled reputation for interpreting the great music of the 1920s and 30s. Rosene is a passionate vocalist whose interpretations uncover the richness of jazz classics through the skilled delivery of one truly in love with the genre she sings. She has graced stages internationally, including with Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks, the late Les Paul at NY’s Iridium Jazz Club, The Woody Allen Band, at The Carlyle Hotel, Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall, the Montreal Jazz Festival and Lake Como, Italy.
