The Segue Sisters In… Jailbirds (The Segue Sisters)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

The hour I spent with the Segue Sisters was like my first bite of haggis: extremely bizarre but oh, so tasty. There can be no doubt that their absurd humour isn’t for everyone, but the wit is lightning fast. In between the oddities, the sisters belt out near flawless three part harmonies, and if their jokes at times left me scratching my head, every single song put a smile on my face. Given the number of singing groups doing the same old gig at the Fringe, it’s refreshing to see these women daring to do something different. At times you’re not sure if they’re trying too hard to be funny or genuinely being bizarre, but once they stop teasing and start singing, you won’t care.
