Edinburgh Fringe

This week the Edinburgh Fringe has started.... and I'm in Edinburgh now until Monday.

I'll pop in for updates as often as poss but won't be home for a while so internet access may be difficult.

Concert-wise: Tomorrow & Thurs - Bach B minor Mass Cannongate Kirk
Sunday - Glasgow Chamber Choir gig... don't know where or what I'm playing.
Sunday 19th August at 8pm St Cuthberts Church - Trumpet trio recital with organ in St Cuthbert's church.
It's all fun. Though Edinburgh is completely mental during August - there are people everywhere. I try to be tolerant, but it can be difficult when you are running late for a rehearsal and have to try to get a path through the crowds of tourists standing looking around... I have to resist the temptation to use my trumpet as a battering ram to force my way through!

So: If you're about in Edinburgh on the 19th we would very much appreciate your support! It's free entry & unticketed (although we will need donations or we won't get paid...).

I am on holidays at the english coast, in Eastbourne ! The weather is very good, the sea is of an unreal blue the seagulls shout and these old english coast towns are just lovely. I use the computer in my room early mornings when everybody is still asleep, cats included ! Today we will go to London doing some shopping and visiting my friend's daughter.

That brought back memories, thinking of the Edinburgh Festival. When I was in Stirling I hit the city streets every year about this time... how wonderful it was just drifting around from show to show... just seeing all the people. So colourful.

Mind you, I was a lot younger then. Maybe I wouldn't enjoy it quite so much now (though I think I would)

Have a lovely time!

See you again soon

Wow...this sounds so exciting! Let us know how it went!

I hope you have a packed house and the funding is generous.
