We’re definitely ready to swing into January like Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball and smash 2018, but first we want to take a moment to celebrate a few of this year’s highlights.
Following on from Part 1, this sequel update looks at some more of the amazing artists that we’ve recently worked with, and what they’re currently up to.
2017 is drawing to a close, but there’s no rest for the wicked…and, well, we’re most definitely wicked. We’ve got a number of exciting projects for next year on the go, so stay tuned! But in the meantime; here’s an update of what some of our brilliant 2017 Fringe stars are working on at the moment.
Yes! Our favourite Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Michelle Shocked – the Godmother of Americana – is bringing her unique blend of indie, folk, blues, and politics to the UK, kicking off her Mercury Rising Tour at Brasserie Zédel’s legendary Crazy Coqs in London, as part of their Live at Zédel programme this coming February. Known as the ‘Mercury Trilogy’ (due to being released by Mercury Records), Short Sharp Shocked, Captain Swing, and Arkansas Traveler are arguably Michelle Shocked’s most enduring works.
It’s true that there are a million different motivations to take part in a Fringe festival, but if you really want to have a great time, you have to bring great work.
Producing 14 shows across six venues, plus doing PR for three additional shows, meant a very busy July/August for us indeed. But more importantly, it meant meeting and working with an army of amazing artists and arts industry people to deliver an exciting programme of world-class shows. And in the end, the fun totally outweighed the fatigue and stress. We may still be knackered and full of the Fringe flu right now, but we’re also feeling pretty darn proud of our first, full Edinburgh Fringe season.
