A fantastic night with Linn Lorkin Trio (French Toast) in the bar. French flavours, food, wine, beer and song. Linn has returned to NZ after her world travels and is renowned for her talent and singing in several languages. Well received at the Esplanade last year with 'French toast'.

After they've seen her performing, people come up to Linn Lorkin and ask her where she's from, expecting her to say Paris or Bordeaux or Marseille and when she says "I'm from a dairy farm near Tokoroa," they're amazed. When she sings in French and other languages there's an ease and authenticity that belie her Waikato upbringing.

"It's a lovely and expressive language to sing in," she says. And she looks French too, often reminding people of Edith Piaf.

Having graduated with honours in French from Auckland University and studied in France as well, Linn's French is, well, pretty good for a Tokoroa girl. When she first became a professional singer years ago with a jazz trio in the red-light district of Copenhagen, she made sure she had a few well-chosen little French numbers in her repertoire and has been adding others ever since.

She has performed French chansons in many different places: South Miami Beach, the Island of Jersey, Brittany, Sydney and Melbourne.

She has twice toured New Zealand with a popular cabaret show called "In a French Cafe".
"...Parisian-chic... makes you feel like you're in Montmartre or the Marais." - Peter Calder, New Zealand Herald, 4/11/2012
