Martha Wainwright played Spiegelworld's Spiegeltent in NYC near the South Street Seaport last night (Sept 16). As usual, she was joined on stage by a cast of talented musicians - some friends, some relatives. Unlike usual, this show, entitled "Martha Wainwright sings Edith Piaf", was heavy on the Piaf covers. She said it was a rehearsal of sorts for a future recording. The setlist also included "Dis quand reviendras-tu?" by Barbara, a French folk song sung by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and a Josephine Baker song performed by Rufus. More pictures and the setlist below...
