Jessica Fichot

Jessica Fichot will play at the Bothwell Arts Center on March 27.

Singer/songwriter Jessica Fichot, who appeared at the Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore last summer, will return for an evening performance on Friday, March 27.

Fichot’s mix of global influences creates a musical melting pot. Born in upstate New York to a Chinese mother and French father, she sings in French, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and English. Drawing from her multi-ethnic upbringing, her music fuses styles and languages, moving from the French chanson tradition, through gypsy jazz, retro Chinese swing, and international folk, into her own imagination.

Fichot released her first album, “Le Chemin,” in 2007. “Dear Shanghai,” her most recent release, is a mix of 1940s Shanghai jazz gems, Mandopop classics, and her own original songs.

The cabaret vibe and intimate, casual atmosphere of the Bothwell are a perfect setting for this musical journey.

The performance at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 Eighth Street, will begin at 8 p.m., with tickets priced at $20 each. For tickets, call (925) 373-6800, or go to
