The immortal Alberta Hunter. Lied about her age to start singing in clubs as a teenager (older) lied about her age to become a nurse when her stardom faded (younger and invented a high school diploma.) Forced to retire from nursing when she reached "retirement age" (she was actually over 80) she returned to singing and again recorded, toured Europe, and did weekly sold-out gigs at the Greenwich Village club "The Cookery."
Kiruna, Sweden (north of the Arctic Circle). I went to get a glimpse of the Northern Lights and while I was there on the shortest day of the year, I only got a slight glimpse of the lights after hiking about an hour out of town into the freezing night.
