Sue Matthews brings the legends of song (composers and artists) from our Great American Songbook to life, with the Songbook Series.
Popular music written in better than the 1st half of the 20th Century for Stage, Screen, Publishing Houses and Record Labels, continues to influence musicians, performers and audiences of today.
This immense body of work, culled together, is referred to as our Great American Songbook or The Book of Standards.
The ‘Songbook Series’ (created and produced by Sue Matthews and pianist Robert Redd), celebrates the life and music or lyrics of those composers and lyricists, as well as the singing stars who performed and recorded their songs.
These tribute shows bring the artists to life, weaving both story and song into evocative performances by vocalist Sue Matthews and pianist Robert Redd.
The ‘Songbook Series’ shows can be presented as a 1-set show (running time from 60–75 minutes), or as a standard 2-set show, (running time of 2 plus hours), including an intermission. Additional instrumentation can be added upon request.
