Janice Hawke & Patti Loach

Janice Hawke & Patti Loach

What do Gilda Radner, Madeline Kahn and Carol Burnett have in common?

In their new show, “Some Women”, singer Janice Hawke and and pianist Patti Loach lovingly – and in some cases hilariously – reprise songs that were sung or written by Gilda, Madeline, Carol and a handful of other women who lived and worked in the worlds of Musical Theatre, contemporary cabaret, television, jazz, the Great American Songbook and Pop Music.

Duration: 90 minutes.  

Listen here.
