The concert

The Music Of James Bond features all the greatest theme songs from the explosive Bond franchise - Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Nobody Does It Better, Live And Let Die, From Russia With Love and of course the Oscar winning Skyfall. The list of artists who have performed these iconic songs is impressive - Gladys Knight, Carly Simon, Adele, Tina Turner and of course Shirley Bassey to name but a few - but in concert halls from New York to Melbourne, Berlin to Shanghai Mary has won accolades for her ability to honour these vocalists whilst making the songs her own.
A typical programme contains around 20 of the songs plus some of the incidental music for the orchestra including, of course, the original theme from Dr No and can be structured to feature Mary alone or to include a male vocalist.

REVIEWS

"The star of the evening, however, is the license to sing, Mary Carewe... "Licence To Kill" is a highlight... she gives it everything."
Berliner Morgenpost
" The vocalist was Mary Carewe...She rose above the challenge effortlessly, with a suave, polished, intimate version full of rich vocal colours and expressiveness. "
The Scotsman
" Carewe's job wasn't easy. She had to evoke, without impersonating, such diverse voices as Shirley Bassey, Carly Simon, Sheena Easton and Paul McCartney. Yet with a crisp delivery and a versatile vocal range at her command, Carewe performed admirably."
Star-Telegram, Fort Worth
