Birthday Giveaways: 2 tickets to No Regrets – The Music of Edith Piaf.

Seeing as how it’s the first day of the birthday giveaways I thought a second competition would go down a treat.

Any Edith Piaf fans out there? Jeannette Byrne is taking her wonderful theatrical homage to Edith Piaf to Dublin’s Chancery Theatre on January 18th, February 8th and March 22nd and I have a pair of tickets to giveaway for the January show.

Jeannette Byrne’s acclaimed theatrical show No Regrets – The Music of Édith Piaf made it’s Dublin début last year, selling out the Sugar Club.

Jeannette Byrne Edith Piaf

As a performer of the French Chanson, Jeannette marked this special date with a tribute to Piaf. No Regrets features many of the well known & not so well known songs of Piaf. It also features music from other composers who were discovered or owed much of their success or start in the music world to her.

This is a wonderful chance for fans on Piaf to lose themselve in her music in modern times.

If you would like to nab a pair, please make sure you are available to attend the show in Dublin on January 18th before you fill out the form below.

Winner will be announced on January 15th 

Keep your eyes peeled for more chances to win tickets to Jeannette Byrne’s show.
