Antonio Forcione

Another fine helping of show tips from ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses; this time from the music programme.

Antonio Forcione Group
With good reason, ThreeWeeks reviewers love Antonio Forcione. And I mean, really, really like. One of our writers said this: “There are no words to describe the greatness of this show”. And another said this: “A superb dose of world-class talent”. So, what are you waiting for?
Assembly George Square, 16-26 Aug, 9.00pm.

Brassed On
I’m a sucker for a brass band – perhaps it’s my Northern heritage – which explains why I might have fallen for this listing in the Fringe Programme. Brassed On are apparently Scotland’s foremost brass band, renowned for their exciting and diverse repertoire, and this is their Fringe debut. What a shame they’re not here for a full run…
The Assembly Rooms, 2 Aug , 8.00pm.

Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers
Europe’s leading Taiko group head to Edinburgh for a full run of thundering drums, brilliant timing, and – blurb says – post apocalyptic imagery and belly laugh humour. This type of traditional performance has taken the Festival by storm before, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it did so again.
Assembly George Square, 1-26 Aug (not 12, 19), 12.30pm.
