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.

This event takes place at Brighton Dome, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
