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 big band hits and the softer tones needed for those requiring a more emotive 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.

This includes some of the more traditional British songs from Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields and George Formby, soldier songs that have become famous singalongs, and the more upbeat (and controversial) 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. Past bookings have included birthday parties, weddings, public events including Padiham on Parade, Lytham 1940s Weekend, Redcar Forces Day, and private forces bookings including a local Battle of Britain Dinner at RAF Leeming. 

Community organisations are welcome to enquire regarding 1940s tribute shows as if they are charitable organisations who have to fund raise for events they are entitled to a discounted week-day rate.

To check availability, email Claire Louise direct at claire-louise-songstress@live.co.uk

**Please note, Claire Louise is fully booked for Sun 13th November (Remembrance Sunday 2022) but has availability for  VE Day  and the Jubilee bank holiday.
