The second program is an evening filled with American standards: 'It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing.' Micheline lived for ten years in Manhattan and was inspired by Cole Porter, Gershwin and Charlie Chaplin. She makes a mélange of their repertoire with songs from: The Singing Detective: Don't Fence Me In, The Man I Love, Teddy Bear's Picnic, Accentuate the Positive and Smile. She will take you to smoky bars and jazzy nightclubs, tell stories about the writer, the singer or the song and bring back memories of the 30s and 40s. Frank de Kleer will also accompany Micheline on guitar in this show.

Xaviera gives you a choice of two different programs. A difficult decision to make, unless you come for both shows!

ABOUT MICHELINE VAN HAUTEM

Micheline Van Hautem

Micheline, born and raised in Ghent, stepped out into the world of music ten years ago, armed with only her voice, her guitar and her laptop. Her first stop was New York, a melting pot of nationalities and cultures. To set her apart from other grand performers in the city, the Belgian born muse sang songs primarily in French, in particular Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf. It wasn't long before she found herself performing for sold out audiences at The Florence Gould Hall in Manhattan.

The Songs of Jacques Brel led her to Edinburgh – where she was honored with the prestigious Herald Angel Award - then on to Australia, where she received standing ovations, twice selling out the Sydney Opera House.In Europe Micheline was enthusiastically received, selling out the Concert Hall in Amsterdam. Micheline was inspired by her fellow countryman Brel, and she was intrigued by the haunting music of the little French sparrow Edith Piaf

ABOUT FRANK DE KLEER

Frank de Kleer guitaristFrank made his first appearance as a musician when he was 12and that was in the style of the French gypsy guitar player Django Reinhardt. Free lemonade was Frank's only payment back then. This experience gave him his thirst for the music that he later in life specialized in: Jazz, blues, gypsy music, flamenco and South American rhythm. Lately, Frank de Kleer also performs as a magician and his sources of inspiration are Buster Keaton and Tommy Cooper. So be prepared: If the mood is right, Frank may show you some real magic tricks!
