Award-winning Lyon-based singer songwriter Lily Luca is talented with the sketchpad in more ways than one: she paints scenes rich in perceptiveness, rhythm and melody with the words of her bittersweet “chansons françaises” that she delivers with a mischievous charisma. Irony & humour pervade her fine vocals and when she’s not singing, she’s sketching with pens and pencils… Lily will be joined by guitarist Jean de Talhouët and multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas. This will her first performance in the UK since the launch of her latest album “Le Charme Impénétrable des Artistes Torturés” in April this year.
