Adam Page

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Instantly disarming, Adam Page introduces you to his world of passionate music-making before getting straight down to business, crafting improvised songs that beggar belief. Page’s serious side is captured in an incredible saxophone centrepiece and an inspired melody on the harmony-flute that left the audience reeling with emotion. Blending humour and music is no easy task but Page’s interludes, often appearing mid-song, give the impression that you are merely enjoying a pint with him; except when he pulls out an instrument, or five, and blows you away with his merry dancing, great singing and incredible skill. Soulful sax, banging beats and excellent anecdotes make this show worth seeing twice, three times, or all month long. It’s that good.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, (not 12) 4.50pm.
