BEYOND THE BEEHIVE: Amy Winehouse Tribute Comes To The Butterfly Club In May
In a celebration of the incredible talent of Amy Winehouse, Carol Whitfield takes 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 Tuesday 15 May and runs for five performances. Bookings recommended.
