Sarah Moule at the Herne Hill Music Festival - Half Moon, 19th October

Sarah Moule is performing at the Herne Hill Music Festival at the Half Moon Pub on Friday, 19th October. Her show FEMMES FATALES - SONGS FOR THE FALLEN WILD & WICKED has been getting great reviews:

'Compelling', 'empowering' and 'highly original' was the audience reaction to this new show. It celebrates the iconic figure of the femme fatale in all her feisty glory as heroine, heartbreaker, rule-breaker and role model. Devised with the great American lyricist Fran Landesman who died in July 2011.

Sarah and her accompanist Simon Wallace did a BBC London radio interview with Jumoke Fashola last week. She plugged the Herne Hill Music Festival and she got us the audio of her guest slot, which includes music. You can hear an edited extract of this in the embedded audioplayer below. Or to hear the whole thing, go to the Herne Hill Music Festival's Facebook wall and listen to 'Sarah Moule on Radio London' or just follow this link: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151245597608126
