A regular favourite feature at the Duke of George, Catherine’s shows weave historic stories around effortlessly delivered well-known classics of love, fun and adventure, heartbreak, loss and remorse. You’ll feel right there in the 30's and 40's when these great songs first heard.

“Catherine Summers is spirited host, classy comedienne and singing talent to boot, all in one confident and spunky package. She brings sass, style and talent to the stage like no singer I’ve seen this Fringe season (21’). Catch her performance before the sun sets, on select nights at stylish Lamont’s Bishops House in Perth.” ★★★★★Antonino Tati, Cream Magazine 2020

“The quality that sets her apart from other singers is that people of all ages feel ‘instantly familiar’ with her and soak up her banter and on-stage charisma.” ★★★★★ Steven Shaw / The Music Review

"The ever-reliable Summers displays her lovely intonation and impeccable phrasing
 with panache - and she looks dressed to thrill." ★★★★★ Australian Stage

“We talk about Catherine Summers off-air, and both feel the same way about her talent! Apart from accurate pitch and beautifully controlled vibrato, she has the style and maturity to carry off the Great American Songbook compositions – just like her US idols.” ★★★★★ Ann Bolton & Ken Turnbull, Jazz Life Main FM 94.9 Victoria
