Utterly charming….White sings as if she was the author, invested in every word, communicating every feeling. With Vince Learned on piano, vocals ably fall into place both musically and dramatically

Pippa was such a pleasure. She worked hard to create more than a character; she brought real understanding to the process of writing lyrics, and the life of this great songwriter. Her interaction with her accompanist added an entertaining dimension to this ‘one-person’ show.

Pippa White’s performance of I Can’t Give You Anything But Songs was simply phenomenal. We certainly would have [Pippa and Vince Learned] back without hesitation.

Pippa White and Vince Learned ‘wowed’ our audience. They worked very well together and it was a great show. We were delighted with the performance and they were a joy to work with.
