Singer Promises ‘Gloriously Eclectic Show’ For Islands

liza pulmanIslanders and visitors are being promised a unique evening of entertainment over the Bank Holiday weekend when professional opera singer Liza Pulman will perform a show filled with satirical songs and moving music.

Liza is a member of the successful and long-running comedy trio Fascinating Aida, who came to the islands in 2013 to share their witty observations through three-part harmony songs.

And she says her theme of “all things horticultural” gives her lots of scope for piecing together a show from “all sorts of magical places.”

The set-list is diverse and Liza says if you love gardens and flowers, comedy and music, then it will be a “gloriously eclectic show.”

Although Liza trained in opera, she says her real passion is to entertain through music and she likens herself more to an old-fashioned music hall performer than a highbrow opera singer.

And she’s promising plenty of laughs and clean fun with her one-woman show.

All the venues where Liza has performed this show have been out-of-doors and she’s looking forward to returning to Scilly because of the atmosphere here.

She says it feels like “singing in your front room to a group of friends rather than at the Palladium in London.”

Liza is performing ‘Everything’s Coming up Roses’ at Karma St Martin’s at 6.30pm on Friday 28tth August, then she’s at Tresco Abbey Gardens at 6.30pm on Saturday 29th with the final show at the Star Castle at 2.30pm on Sunday 30th.

The event is being arranged by the Islands’ Partnership. Tickets are £15 (free for under 16s). You can get them from the TIC or on the door.
