The singing city - Edinburgh through words and music

An evening's entertainment which opens up Edinburgh's musical, literary and historical landscape through a kaleidoscope of words, music and song. Sir Walter Scott called it 'mine own romantic town'; Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, describes it less poetically as 'A dirty, cold, wet, run-down slum'. In other words, like every great metropolis, Edinburgh is a city of two faces. The tourist face and the local face. 'The Singing City' explores both with a collection of stories and songs from the streets of Edinburgh performed by some of the city's greatest singers and spinners of yarns. This event is performed after dinner in a local restaurant or in a local pub. The choice is yours.
