Happy New Year Wrigglers! Do we have an exciting array of events for you this year? We most certainly do! We have been organising and planning until the wee hours, up way too early and have been testing our admin. skills to the limit, so read on!
We have organised a fantastic February for you and we cannot wait to kick start 2019 with last year’s Edinburgh fringe favourite The Lion and the Mouse. The two Louise’s will be bringing this wonderful programme to wrigglers in the south, in a series of four fabulous concerts. We enjoyed our Christmas concerts so much that we will be returning to the same venues, in Weybridge, Twickenham, Chertsey and Barnes, to play this fun programme in England for the first time.

Louise B. and her wrigglers will then be travelling north to beautiful Scotland to join Clea, for a series of five concerts based on Kings and Queens. Our King Arthur programme is full of royal music and includes music by the renowned Scottish composer Suzanne Parry John, based on the legend of King Arthur. We commissioned Suzanne to write the piece for us in 2017 and it is a lot of fun to play. We even have to sing and play at one point, so it’s worth getting tickets just to come and see us do that!

Our next adventure will be to the other side of the world, as we have been invited to perform at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in March. The Adelaide Fringe is the second largest annual arts festival in the world (the largest is of course Edinburgh!). We will be playing at four exciting venues in Adelaide, including the prestigious, and wonderfully named, Gluttony, and will be performing three different programmes; Wriggle Around the World, The Hare and the Tortoise and The Lion and the Mouse. Publicising our concerts in Adelaide has been a challenge, because we are playing so many shows in multiple venues and a variety of programmes, that fitting it onto one poster has been tricky. But we have found one graphic designer who is up for the challenge and we are awaiting the results before being able to arrange distribution over there. We have had a lot of contact with the venues, organisers, promoters and other artists, and we are really excited to be participating in this incredible event. Our flights are booked and we have our Australian work visas, so we are good to go. The most difficult challenge is the wait! You can check out our Adelaide concerts here.
Clea will be celebrating the work of Robert Burns on January 26th with an exciting evening of music by our very own Suzanne Parry John and the incredibly lovely Nigel Osbourne. The concert takes place at Riddles Court, at Lawnmarket, and is a must for those looking for an unforgettable opportunity to celebrate the work of this great man. Book Burns Tickets
Happy January and we look forward to seeing you soon!
