“Billie & Me” is a Jazz & Blues one-woman-show that draws humorous, thought-provoking, entertaining parallels and similarities between Billie Holiday's and Patti’s life through childhood, career, love life, influences, lifestyle choices etc. "Billie & Me” features music of Billie Holiday, Etta James, Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter, Bizet, etc. Following the last two years of sell-outs of her one-woman show “Billie & Me” the award-winning singer and musical theatre star Patti Boulaye, returned to touring UK in 2019 with her brand-new one-woman show “Aretha and Me”. However, there are always many requests for Patti to reprise “Billie & Me” and Patti is always thrilled to perform the show about Billie Holiday whom she regards as her personal idol. So, “Billie & Me” returns to the Bulls Head for a special performance as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.
