1940s Wartime Tribute

Music was crucial to the war effort as it helped to boost morale and remind people that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. This means there is a wealth of songs to be covered from the era. As a classically trained jazz and traditional pop singer, Claire Louise has the perfect voice to sing this wide variety of songs as she has both the power needed to belt out the jazz era big band hits and the softer tones needed for those requiring a more emotive classical delivery. She can easily take an audience from a sentiment filled singalong of The White Cliffs of Dover into an upbeat big band classic like In The Mood.

Claire Louise has put together an authentic 1940s tribute act covering songs popular during the wartime era. She can take you on a journey through the era or simply entertain with her varied song choices.

This includes some of the more traditional British songs from Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields and George Formby, soldier songs that have become famous singalongs, music hall classics such as My Old Man Said Follow the Van, and the more upbeat American big band and boogie woogie style made famous by Glenn Miller and The Andrews Sisters. 

Claire Louise's wartime tribute can be booked for public events, corporate events and private parties. Recent public bookings have included Tanfield Railway, Lytham 1940s Weekend, Ushaw House and Gardens Back to the 1940s, Northallerton Forces Day, and private forces bookings including the Battle of Britain Dinner at RAF Leeming.
