1.5 Degrees Live!, the cover to cover reading of the IPCC Report at the Edinburgh Fringe, has announced its first batch of readers and are calling for more people to get involved!
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.
Listen up, creative types; our associate producer Louise Oliver has got something to tell you. Whether you're about to battle the wild and fickle beast that is the Edinburgh Fringe, or pack in a secure day job for a precarious career in the performing arts, Louise is here to remind you of how much the world needs you. And as seasoned arts industry manager, who also acts, writes, sings, and produces for a living, she knows what the hell she's talking about.
