Brighton Festival: Musik Kabarett: Nina Hagen, David McAlmont, Jamie McDermott, The Irrepressibles
Think of cabaret and you think of Berlin in the 1920s and ’30s, where ‘Kabarett’ became a hotbed of counter- culture creativity and genre-defining performance styles. In this tribute to Kabarett’s lasting influence on the music of today, three critically-admired artists reinterpret some of the most influential theatrical songs of the 20th century, each infused with their very own individual flavour.
Hagen’s utterly idiosyncratic style, veering from full- throated operatic to heavy-duty rock and eccentric cabaret chic, plugs into the subversive tradition of 1920s Kabarett. She was born in Berlin; this legacy is in her blood, and it is her highly original development of the Berlin tradition that has made her a cult figure on the club and cabaret scene.
David McAlmont’s vocal versatility and power has long been admired throughout the music industry. His staggering voice finds yet a new platform here to add to his huge repertoire of styles.
Jamie McDermott and his band The Irrepressibles have a sophisticated brand of spectacle which is firmly rooted in the Kabarett convention. Their rich instrumentations and haunting vocals come together on stage with dazzling panache.
A remarkably gifted vocalist who has worked with Bernard Butler, Courtney Pine, Craig Armstrong, David Arnold, Jools Holland and Terence Blanchard.
