About this event

Phoebe is not your average funeral singer. For one thing, she is considered too young. For another, she wants to put her stamp on funerals. Phoebe says "Death is sad, but it doesn't have to be boring", "Songs can unite people in grief like nothing else." Unlike glamorous wedding singers, funeral singers are overlooked in status, media and movies. Phoebe is addressing this oversight with her funeral-themed cabaret.

Join Phoebe in her search for songs to provide intimate, personalised funerals and explore with her the lows and highs of grieving in song. Let Phoebe's delightful singing demonstrate how song can string souls together. She will take you on a songful journey to help you find your perfect funeral repertoire -- literally a funeral to die for.
