Red Priest in Gypsy Baroque Fantasy

The famed baroque ensemble explores the connections – real and imagined – between gypsy musicians and the master composers of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Were early baroque maestri inspired by the insane virtuosity of the travelling gypsies of the time? And how might the music of Handel or Vivaldi sound in the hands of a gypsy band?

Piers Adams (recorder)
Adam Summerhayes (violin)
Angela East (cello)
David Wright (harpsichord)

WHY? Red Priest combines its trademark baroque dynamism with true gypsy mayhem!

Helen Lederer and Athena Kugblenu

An Edinburgh Festival preview from So Comedy.

Helen Lederer feels it’s time to spill all, before she forgets and gets taken off the patches altogether. What went on in the Big Brother House?

Can she be honest about stand-up comedy, being fat, wheezy and other secrets? probably not. She might lie.

‘A miracle of comic compression and control’ The Times

'Divinely witty' The Guardian

'Cleverly insane' The Observer

Athena Kugblenu says the world's never had more knowledge, yet never more stupidity. She can’t help but notice consistencies between the universe and herself. How can she blame people for choosing Trump when she's choosing the wrong men?

Clearly we haven't realised she constantly makes mistakes so we don't have to. Join Athena for a tour of the world’s most pressing catastrophes which pale compared to what happened when she fixed her own washing machine.

'A smart, impassioned comedian' The Scotsman

'Good material, sharp presentation... an important voice' The Sunday Times

WHY? Helen is famed for The Naked Video and Absolutely Fabulous while Athena writes for BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz
