16 December Saturday – Close to You: A Tribute to Karen Carpenter
Saturday 16 December 2017, 8.30pm
Meera Belle brings this elegant homage to Foundry616 for one night only – to celebrate the life and music of one of the best loved female voices of all time, Karen Carpenter.
One half of the famous brother/sister duo, Carpenters, who dominated the International music scene for the decade between 1969-1979, Karen’s life was played out in public against her own personal desires. Eventually, the stress took it’s toll and Karen died tragically of anorexia nervosa, bringing that terrible illness to the attention of the world for the first time.
On the way, however, she carved a huge reputation as a consummate musician and drummer and captivated the world with her unusual strong alto vocals, brilliantly showcased by the sublime arrangements provided by her brother, Richard.
