Monkey Music

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

From the minute we grabbed a spot on the beanbags that lined the Pleasance igloo, it was straight into the Monkey Music. ‘Monkey Music’ – a get-together for mums and children, from babies to preschoolers – takes place around Edinburgh weekly, and this session was aimed at preschool children. There was not a lot of monkey, however, though he made a few appearances to bang his drum and shake his maraca. The songs were simple and the instruments noisy; I spotted a few grannies and granddads joining in too! Some of the children began to get a little fed up towards the end, but most were reluctant to give their instruments back. Lots of musical fun for all.

Pleasance Courtyard, 4 – 27 Aug, times vary, £2.00 – £7.00, fpp26.
