ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends three musical treats from the cabaret programme at Festival 2011.

A set of musical, conjoined twins Eva, and Lyn. Well, go on, they’re not really, it’s actually Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls and folk punk type Jason Webley pretending to be the conjoined twins, purporting to have ‘discovered’ them in 2007. It’s ‘Baroque Pop’ according to Wikipedia. Which sounds good to me.
Assembly George Square, 17 – 21 Aug, 9.10pm (10.10pm), £12.00-13.00, fpp10.

Muse Chanteuse
Lisa Byrnes and Chris Taylor with a musical smorgasbord; original classical music, opera and virtuoso piano meet cabaret and jazz, darkness, landscapes and dreams, fantasy, romance and love. Good stuff.
spaceCabaret at 54, 15 – 27 Aug (not 21), 2.30pm (3.15pm), £5.00-8.00, fpp12.

Lili La Scala: Songs To Make You Smile
If you like your music a little retro, well, Lili La Scala specialises in renditions of vintage classics and has the looks to match. She promises a collection of old-style funnies.
Assembly George Square, 3 – 28 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 5.00pm (6.00pm), £7.50-9.50, fpp12.
