Description

For just three special shows, newly created for 2021, together again to celebrate the return of the Fringe. Carol Ann is one of the most respected poets in the English language. John is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist with a highly individual, humorous touch. Two rare talents meshing and contrasting delightfully in performances, matured over many years of international touring, that leaven serious and profound themes with detours down the byways of absurdity. Wit, wisdom and wonder delivered through consummate verbal and musical dexterity. At last, the genuinely thought-provoking entertainment we've all been hungering for.

Poor show. The venue- a noisy car park and the poetry content - were a match made in hell. Hard to hear and all nuance was lost. But I felt both performers lacked energy and were much less entertaining than last year. The choice of content was interesting but it all felt a little drab and lacklustre. The loyal fans deserved more and I won't rush to book again. The duo needs to find a better setting or chose not to perform (and take customers' money) in an inadequate venue.
