It’s feeling very Autumnal in Edinburgh now and the summer seems like a distant memory. But don’t worry, as we have lots of exciting concerts to bring to you, to get you through the cooler months (don’t panic – we won’t mention ‘Christmas’ yet!).
We had an incredibly successful and enjoyable time at the Edinburgh fringe. Our two programmes enjoyed healthy box office turnovers. Our new show The Lion and the Mouse achieved sellout status, which we were thrilled about, and our fringe favourite Wriggle Around the World narrowly missed achieving a third sellout laurel. Thank you to our Edinburgh audiences for making our run such big a success.
New for the fringe were our super stickers, designed by our wonderful illustrator Ben Newman, in between changing nappies as he now has a second wriggler (congratulations to Ben and Dora!). Ben also worked on our CD icon, as we have recently made our CD available on iTunes and Amazon, following urgent requests from parents without anything to play a CD on! Now you can download individual tracks, or the entire album if you wish. Or if you want to marvel at Ben’s wonderful design, you can buy the CD from our website: Buy CD
Clea and Aisling performed a sellout show at the Palace of Holyroodhouse last weekend and have been mixing The Lion and the Mouse with The Hare and the Tortoise in and around Edinburgh, with the wonderful cellist Niamh Molloy. We are grateful to Niamh for sharing the concerts with Clea, who has been doing educational projects for the Dunedin Consort: Dunedin Consort
We are also taking bookings in Edinburgh and the South of England for our popular Halloween shows. You can see Clea (and/or Niamh) and Aisling at Marchmont, Stockbridge, Linlithgow and Portobello and the two Louises at Twickenham and Chertsey. Details of how to book are here: Book tickets
This week we found out that we have been officially invited to play at the Adelaide fringe in March. We will be playing at Gluttony, one of the most vibrant and buzzy venues in Adelaide and we are also hoping to do some outreach work in between. We are incredibly excited to be part of the Adelaide fringe 2019, which is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest open access arts festival, and the biggest ticket selling arts festival in Australia. You will hear plenty more about this in the months to come. We were so excited that when the aeroplane booking came through, Louise accidently sent a whoop of joy to the airline!
Thank you for your support in our concerts and do tell friends and family about us, whether they are based in Scotland, England, Australia or elsewhere – we are always open to suggestions of new venues and areas to try and are always keen to perform our shows to new audiences. Perhaps you are having a party or a festive event towards the end of the year? Do bear us in mind, whether your event is for young or old. We cater for all! Happy Halloween and see you soon!
Lou and Clea
