Zona Vevey, whilst almost unknown today, was top of the bill in 1910.
She was described as "Britain's Daintiest Comedienne". Zona Vevey had a
fine clear voice and performed with her husband Max Erard who both
accompanied her and composed most of her dainty songs.
Max Erard was famous himself for his touring
cathedral organ which required eight lorries to transport it round the
country. On this 25 track CD, Zona sings of love and reminiscences,
particularly for the country life.
