Songs For Cynics (Roulston & Young / Festival Highlights)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston voice the thoughts every cynic has been afraid to say out loud through witty lyrics to catchy tunes. ‘Songs For Cynics’ is a simple but sweet duet performance by two upbeat and talented musicians. The set mainly consists of songs about disappointing lovers, the more interesting sex lives of others and, of course, that friend with the ugly baby. The duo make for an early evening treat, although not one to be enjoyed with your mum and dad, as Sarah isn’t afraid to delve into the awkwardly intimate and embarrassing in and around songs. An honest and amusing performance from a talented and hilarious team.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 25 Aug (not 14), 6.30pm.
