South Australian winemaker Greg Cooley of Greg Cooley Wines Clare Valley has teamed up with award winning Adelaide songstress Michaela Burger of the Internationally renowned ‘Exposing Edith’ Cabaret show, to present a night of food, wine & entertainment at the Burke & Wills Hotel. A fabulous opportunity for a pre-Christmas catch up with friends, the evening commences with pre-dinner drinks at 6pm, followed by a 3 course wine dinner with matching wines hosted by Clare Valley winemaker Greg Cooley, followed by the Éxposing Edith’ show. Join Greg as he shares with you in good humour the stories behind his wines and his journey thus far as a winemaker. Then settle in for the fabulous Exposing Edith show.

An award-winning cabaret tale of the legendary French singer Edith Piaf, the show has won Best Cabaret at the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival and in 2019 was nominated for a Helpmann Award. From performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, to Leicester Square Theatre, Fringe World and The Auckland International Cabaret Festival Éxposing Edith’ has wowed audiences far and wide.

Created and performed by Michaela Burger [vocals] and Greg Wain [guitar], Exposing Edith is a stunning mix of authentic French chanson and contemporary sounds. Having explored the undertones of Piaf's vocals and lyrics, Burger and Wain have created their own unique interpretations of Piaf’s work, using voice and acoustic guitar. The songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf’s life which are recounted by Burger, who also takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith’s half-sister Momone, to several of her lovers and, of course, Edith Piaf herself.

The breathtaking show which charts the tragic life of arguably the greatest French singer of all time, features classics such as La Vie en Rose, Milord, Padam and Non, Je ne regrette rien alongside lesser known gems all uniquely reworked using acoustic guitar with loop, delay and effect pedals. The result is an exquisite mix of authentic, vintage French pop and contemporary sounds, while telling the story of Edith’s rise to the top and weaving the romantic tale through some of Piaf’s more famous hits.

Burger has been dubbed as Australia’s very own ‘little sparrow’ with The Age describing her as “A blazing life force in her evocation of Piaf” and Planet Arts Melbourne stating “an enormously deep and tremendous voice, with a richness of passion.
