About the Event
Beyond Fever the songs of Peggy Lee, is a fascinating life story. Singer Sue McHugh tells her story, interwoven with pertinent songs. All the songs were sung by Peggy Lee and some were co-written by her. A little bit of chat but the main focus is on the music. A mixture of sexy latin songs, great swing numbers and heart wrenching ballads to illustrate the life of a remarkable performer and woman.
Sue McHugh vocals A regular on the Scottish jazz scene for around 20 years, Sue has performed at venues all over Scotland and at jazz festivals in the UK and Ireland. While her relaxed style and rich alto voice are well suited to Peggy Lees repertoire, Sue also enjoys unearthing and bringing new life to less well known songs.
