Including a three course dinner prepared by Curlewis Head Chef, Tara Thyer and team, this very special show will provide a unique experience to relive a true icon as acclaimed performer, Nikki Nicholls, brings the multitude of King’s songs to life.
The ‘Baby Boomer’ generation fell in love with Carole King’s melodies and chord structures that seemed to touch the heartstrings of us all and with lyrics that simply expressed our feelings.
“I, like so many others could not get enough of her music,” says Nikki.
“The album ‘Tapestry’ was such an inspiring musical experience for me in my younger years representing memorable moments in my life. I would play it over and over again until I could virtually sing the songs in my sleep. Her music has withstood the age of time and new generations of soulful melody lovers have discovered her once again.”
The show, ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ is a musical journey highlighting not only Carole’s creations, but also adding a taste of James Taylor with songs like ‘How sweet it is to be loved by you’, ‘Fire and Rain’ and ‘Steamroller Blues.’ In 1971, when Carole was the keyboard player in James’ band he decided that she needed to shine. So to her complete dismay, Carole was coaxed to the front of stage by James to take up her rightful position under the spotlight. It was from that moment Carole King the performer was born.
“Her life so far, has certainly been a tapestry of rich and royal hue and I feel extremely blessed to be able to present a collection of her amazing, legendary songs that was the soundtrack of our lives.”
Tickets for the event include three course dinner and show with drinks at bar prices.
