Louise Howlett and Albert Combrink present “Blues in the Night” at the Kleinmond The Big Blue(s) Festival on Jan 10 2010. Taken from their latest CD “Night Sessions”, this programme of songs is inspired by the Night, the Blues, and the great singers who have sung the Blues: Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Eva Cassidy are amongst the vocalists that provide the inspiration for a fresh look at these ever-popular songs. The songs such as  “Old Devil Moon”, “Round Midnight” and  “Fly me to the Moon”, will take you on a personal journey of musical and personal memories of love, longing, and everything else. As always, Louise puts her own spin on the songs, and the team makes their own arrangements of all the material.

The programme will include songs from Louise and Albert’s latest CD “Night Sessions” as well as songs from Louise’s first CD “Your Song”. Louise and Albert have been seen in a variety of programmes from Classical to Jazz to Pop, in programmes such as  “Cinema Serenade” and “Moonlight Serenade” which they presented at the Baxter Theatre, Die Boer Theatre, The Greyton Rose Festival and the Kirstenbosch Chamber Music Breakfast series, to name but a few.
