Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Baroque to Rabbie
In addition to playing in the duo and teaching, I also freelance as a flautist. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe provides opportunities to work with a range of performers at all ages and stages of their careers.
Tradition is that on the eve of the Edinburgh International Festival, Ludus Baroque performs the wonderful Bach B minor Mass in the Canongate Kirk. (Baroque music dates back to early music and the flute used for this is mainly made of wood) Conducted by Richard Neville – Towle. This year the performance took place on 6th August, with 10 amazing singers and the orchestra next stop – The Christmas Oratorio on 12th December!
Back to flute and harp on 8th August for a wedding ceremony in Johnstone, Paisley, on behalf of Freak Music. Braveheart, John Legend, and an upbeat hymn which the guests sang with great gusto!
This week it’s off to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a week long run of a show which premiered last year – “Rabbie“. Based on the life of Rabbie Burns. It’s running at the Surgeons Hall, Nicholson Street. This play is performed by drama students from St George’s School for Girls and Edinburgh College.
Enjoying a busy August 🙂
For further information – we have examples of wedding packages on our website, although we like to tailor things for each couple, to help make their day exactly what they want. Our website also contains some short sound bites of the different styles of music we play. Please get in touch if you want to find out more or discuss your special day.
