First time I became
aware of multitalented keyboardplayer, Sascha Dupont, was when she
joined Freya's backing band in 1999.
It was obvious that she was not merely another keyboardplayer, but she already
was a charismatic stage personality.
Many Danes are most familiar with Sascha
due to her taking part of the team of musicians in "Hit Med Sangen"
on Danish national tv DR1. But she has long time ago proved to be far more than
a television entertainer on Saturday nights. Having released two albums under
her own name, she has showed a side of a gifted and serious artist with her own
personal visions of how a good pop tune are meant to sound like.
What you do
not hear on the album tracks is Sascha's relieving and rare kind
of humour! She shows a delightful informal mood on stage and she has a ability
to make the audience relaxe.
Sascha took it rather easy following
the pre-written set list! Five of the songs on the list were omitted (You
Will Always Be / Lady Cypress / Better Things To Do
/ Keep An Eye On You / Cry Your Hearts
Out). On the other hand we got three songs not being on the set
list (Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Always On
My Mind / Nine To Five). One more issue that makes it exciting
to attend a concert by Sascha Dupont!
My personal wish is
that Sascha some day gathered a group of the countless artists she
has played with during time, and gave a big concert or a tour with a lot of guest
artists and released the event on dvd. It would be great!
After the performance
I talked to Sascha and one of her loyal fans, Fie,
whom I already knew from several concerts by Julie (see here).
See the portraits I made of the two of them.
