Slice of French Toast with dash of fash­ion, flair

Cambridge Edition - - FRONT PAGE - MIKE BAIN

A touch of France plus the trans­for­ma­tion and mys­tique of women’s fash­ion are sure to de­light au­di­ences at this year’s Cam­bridge Au­tumn Fes­ti­val.

Mu­sic lovers be pre­pared to be ef­fort­lessly taken into an in­ti­mate cafe in the heart of Paris, a pi­azza on a warm Rome night, or a Ber­lin cabaret with the sounds from French Toast.

The long es­tab­lished trio of Linn Lorkin (chanteuse), Her­shal Her­scher (ac­corde´on­iste) and Peter Scott (bassiste) are set to de­liver a de­light­ful pot­pourri of well-known chan­sons in French and English.

Their reper­toire of au­then­tic French chan­sons and for­ays into Ital­ian and Ger­man have de­lighted au­di­ences in New Zealand for many years.

French Toast has com­pleted three na­tional tours and per­formed in Syd­ney, Mel­bourne, Florida’s South Beach and the Is­land of Jer­sey.

Their CD, In a French Cafe, has been a con­sis­tent best-seller.

The per­for­mance of this Parisian chic trio is timely given

Also ad­ding to the fes­ti­val and back by pop­u­lar de­mand, is a ‘‘recre­ated’’ Fash­ion over a Teacup.

In wear­able arts style, there will be a ‘‘Recre­ate’’ sec­tion show­cas­ing gar­ments de­signed by cre­atives pas­sion­ate about re­cy­cling, with the core item pur­chased from a Hos­pice shop and trans­formed for the cat­walk.

The sec­tion will en­com­pass two com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gories, Streetwear and Cre­ative.

In­cluded in this year’s show is a pa­rade of vin­tage out­fits do­nated to, and sourced from, Hos­pice Waikato’s shops.

It prom­ises to be a de­light­ful af­ter­noon of high tea and fash­ion.

Au­di­ence mem­bers will be treated to tea from vin­tage china, del­i­cate sand­wiches and mini sweet treats while mod­els strut their stuff on the stage.

Or­gan­ised by Hos­pice Waikato’s Ladies Vol­un­teer Com­mit­tee the event will raise funds to sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s re­gional ser­vices.

Hos­pice Waikato chief ex­ec­u­tive Craig Tam­blyn said peo­ple in Cam­bridge were able to ac­cess the full range of ser­vices pro­vided by Hos­pice Waikato.
