ED2012 Music Review: Art For Lunch – Free Concert At St Giles’ (Various Artists)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Music Reviews

It’s a Fringe-goer’s instinct to live as hectic a life as possible in August, but sometimes we all need to slow down. St Giles’ concert is, as some might say, is that much-needed break. With Will Pickvance on piano and Balazs Hermann on double bass, a feeling of tranquillity is created through the unique melodies compiled seamlessly using songs requested by the audience. The improvised twist and audience interaction adds a nice touch, giving the performance charm and character. A larger variety of instruments might have added some diversity but this was not a necessity. St Giles’ concert presents two performers, a piano, a double bass and a soothing 45 minutes as the perfect remedy to Fringe Festival overload.

St Giles’ Cathedral, 1-30 Aug, 12.15pm.
