Three To See 2014: Shows for music loving kids

Ready Steady Ceilidh

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses begins her highly anticipated (surely!) series of 3 To See tips for Festival 2014 with some music-tastic shows for your children.

Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall
I suppose you really need children who like to dance as well as listen to music for this one. But then, that may as yet turn out to be the real theme of this set of 3s To See. So I should probably have called it ‘Shows For Music And Dance Loving Kids’, but it’s just too late for that now. Anyway, Monski Mouse has been coming to the Fringe for a few years now, and delighting the under-fives and their parents with her electic disco mix of everything from nursery rhymes and eighties classics to Latin, pop and swing. We loved it when we saw it back in 2012.
Assembly George Square Gardens, from 31 Jul until 17 Aug. Tickets here

Ali McGregor’s Jazzamatazz
Highly talented ThreeWeeks Award winning cabaret star and general all round Fringe favourite Ali McGregor is back this year with her acclaimed grown up show Late Night Variety Nite Night, but more importantly for the purposes of this preview piece about children’s shows, she’s also doing another run of Jazzmatazz, her fab kids’ show, for children aged 1+. Perhaps it’s being a parent herself that’s made her so good at knowing how to entertain children, or perhaps she’s just totally ace. Probably the latter. Enjoy. Oh, and more dancing here too.

Ready Steady Ceilidh! (pictured)
And now to even more dancing, with added music, and this time of the Scottish kind, as is highly appropriate, given that this Festival happens in Scotland. ‘Ready Steady Ceilidh’ is the offspring of the adult-orientated (on at 11pm) ‘This Is Ceilidh’, and will be hosted by comedian/CBBC star Iain Stirling, who will presumably add lots of humour to the dance and music compote. One for the highly energetic 6+ year old in your life.
