Since arriving in Ireland in 2002, Caroline Moreau has been wowing Irish audiences with her distinctive brand of Gallic charm, comic banter and heart-stopping vocal talent. Taking over Bewley’s Cabaret Theatre in a haze of heavily accented patter and superb showmanship, her debut show ‘Crime Passionnel’ was delivered with passionate conviction and became a sell-out. Since then, she has performed as a solo artist, in a double-act with acclaimed gypsy violin virtuoso Oleg Ponomarev and with a range of internationally respected musicians in venues all across Ireland and in the UK, France & Spain. In September 2013 Caroline released her follow up album ‘Amour Toujours etc…’to widespread acclaim.
