With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Mairi Campbell answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
That innate rhythm got lost and I had to find it again and this is my story of discovering rhythm and gravity in music….and life; it’s a one- woman musical odyssey.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
The time is right, the show’s ready and Edinburgh’s a great platform… and we got a ‘Made in Scotland’ showcase award.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Don’t forget Portobello Beach! It’s a great place for down time. Jump on the number 26 bus.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
Pulse is a highly resonant and beautifully crafted show performed by an innovative, award-winning musician. For anyone into music, Scotland, and finding your feet, you won’t be disappointed.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Graeme Stephens, Metropolis, Mungo Park, Travels in the Interior of Africa and Will Pickvance: Pianomorphosis. They’re all on at Summerhall, it’s got loads of great shows this year.
