The music of Carole King

Christchurch songbird Ali Harper returns home later this year to present a nostalgic musical ride, honouring Carole King.

“The more I absorb and dive into the music of Carole King, the more I know you are going to just love the show. We honour her songs, her collaborators, the artists who made her music ‘hits’ but also the woman herself,” she explains. The show, A Natural Woman, will be hosted by Ali and also feature her band, Nick Granville (guitar), Francis Meria (piano), Scott Maynard (bass) and guest vocalist Frankie Leota (pictured).

In 1971, the landmark album Tapestry revealed Carole King to be arguably the greatest singer-songwriter of all time.

For so many, her songs have been described as a soundtrack to their lives, says Ali. “Fifty years on, it’s timely that we come together and be wowed by the intensity and vigour of Carole King; songs such as I Feel The Earth Move, It’s Too Late, So Far Away, Natural Woman, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, Smackwater Jack, and You’ve Got A Friend.”

When – 20 to 22 May
