Alastair Savage: Alone with History @ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, Edinburgh
Aug 20 @ 2:30 pm

A series of solo concerts celebrating the magical Scots fiddle tradition by one of the country’s leading exponents. Alastair’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Alone With History features melodies by Niel Gow and James Scott Skinner alongside a unique tribute to Rabbie Burns. The performance represents a heartfelt journey of Scottish history. ‘A must for aficionados, a primer for anyone with a notional interest in Scottish traditional music’ (Keith Bruce, Herald) ‘There is a breathtaking effortlessness to Savage’s musical art: technical and intricate without ever overshadowing the music itself’ (Su O’Brien, BrightYoungFolk.com).

Aug 20 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Passion, intrigue and murder: Mary, Queen of Scots comes alive in three newly commissioned pieces from top contemporary composers, exploring in her own words, love and betrayal with inspirational nobility. ‘Astounding, amazing, electric. Louise Macdonald at her most glorious’ (Liz Scobie, Chairman, West End Festival, 2015).

Aug 20 @ 8:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Secrets, songs and love lives of five legendary divas in a five-star smash hit from double Scotsman Fringe First winner Morag Fullarton. Three make-up ladies bitch, harmonise and laugh as they entertain us with hilarious, heartbreaking, irreverent tales from the dressing rooms of Doris, Dolly, Judy and Liza: of backstage mammas, absent fathers, gay husbands, flunked auditions, sublime singing and the filthiest Julie Andrews ever to grace the boards. Sold out at its Fringe premiere in 2015, the show has received rave reviews. ‘Genius!’ (Robbie Coltrane). ‘Rapturous, witty, impressive’ (Glasgow Herald).
