Harry and Chris 2. I’ve been following Harry Baker at the fringe for several years and he has never failed to amuse. The double act, Harry and Chris, I saw for the first time last year and it was even better this year. Simply a great hour of wit and wordsmithing, a must see event.
Daniel Smith: Blues Piano, tremendous hour of jazz and blues virtuosity at the Jazz bar on Chambers Street. Grab a beer sit back and enjoy an hour of foot tappingly splendid music. A great place to be whether it’s raining or not. And the beer really is good.
Skeptics on the Fringe: Enlightening the Fringe Something to exercise your mental muscles. Michael Marshall’s hour of dissecting the PR and fake news phenomenon in our modern media is just one of the events put on by the Edinburgh Skeptics at the Banshee Labyrinth. Last night it was a forensic look at the crap in our newspapers, stories that purport to be news but are actually adverts is just one of the targets. You’ve missed this one but there are plenty more to tickle your conscience. It’s free so you lose nothing by going along and you might just learn something.
