Juliette Gréco

 

The well known French singer died on Wednesday night. She was loved by many generations of French people and also had a large following in this country.

It seems like yesterday, but it was 10 years ago that we saw her perform at the Royal Festival Hall in London, she was already very frail on that occasion but still full of life, spirit, emotions and humour. I was astonished by the number of young English fans in the audience.

 

I made a programme about her back in 1983 in my series on The French Troubadours.
