Celebrate Bastille Day with Linn Lorkin’s FRENCH TOAST TRIO
The trio of French Toast features Linn Lorkin, chanteuse, Hershal Herscher, accordéoniste and Pierre Scott, bassiste. With a large repertoire of well- known French chansons sung in French and English and occasional forays into Italian and German, they have been delighting audiences in New Zealand for many years now, effortlessly taking them on a magic musical carpet ride to an intimate café in the heart of Paris, a piazza on a warm Roman night, a Berlin cabaret.
French Toast have done three national NZ tours and have performed in Sydney, Melbourne, Florida’s South Beach and the Island of Jersey. Their 2 CDs “In a French Café” and “French Toast, Live at Chez Nous” have been consistent best-sellers.
“… this Parisian-chic trio.. makes you feel like you’re in Montmartre or the Marais”. ” Peter Calder, New Zealand Herald, 4/11/2014
