Susan Black is a singer, songwriter, musician, performer, and has been on the London scene for a number of years. She developed a one woman cabaret show which won her an award at The Edinburgh Festival. Susan then created a show purely based on the songs which enabled Edith Piaf’s rise to fame, which has become ‘The Piaf Story’. The critically acclaimed chanteuse Susan Black will be taking you on a journey to the back streets of Paris, performing songs made famous by this French singing legend, interwoven with stories from the life of this great artist.

“a voice that could fill the Albert Hall without a microphone!”

The Stage

Susan has previously performed her show in Edinburgh, and at London’s top venues including Jermyn St Theatre, Leicester Sq Theatre, Duke of York Theatre, Cadogan Hall, and the famous London Palladium.

She was also fortunate to get together with John Themis, previously MD to Boy George and Culture Club, who produced and recorded an album of Susan singing Piaf songs from the show.

Susan Black has sung on stage alongside such star names as Dame Shirley Bassey and Beverley Knight, and has been supported by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall. She also supported the late Robin Gibb, and Toyah Wilcox, and was the opening act for a Q&A with Sylvester Stallone at Manchester Arena.

Susan Black returns to the Pheasantry cabaret room for one night only for you to enjoy the truly incomparable voice and personality of this unique ‘star’ performer as she brings you her special tribute to Edith Piaf.  ‘The Piaf Story’ will be an evening to remember.
