Elisabeth Welch on Screen
with Stephen Bourne
Saturday 29 October 2011 @ 2:30pm-5.00pm
Elisabeth Welch’s biographer, Stephen Bourne, will share his personal memories of the stage and screen legend. Born in New York, Elisabeth settled in London in 1933 and became the most famous Black woman in pre-war Britain. Her 70-year career included work with Paul Robeson, Cole Porter and Derek Jarman, and she performed in West End musicals throughout. A sophisticated interpreter of popular songs, British audiences were drawn to Elisabeth’s soft, lovely voice and charming personality.
