Free Fringe Music (National Museum of Scotland)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

Les Buckel Combo, a trio from Vienna, gave today’s daily performance on accordion, saxophone, bassoon. The swing jazz group filled the majestic Grand Gallery of the National Museum with a mixture of traditional European pieces and improvised compositions, to the delight of a sizeable crowd; there was a seated audience of about 75 and others watching from the mezzanine levels above. This music series, like many others, brings the best Scottish and international musical talent to Edinburgh during the Festival, a programme which is one of the best of its kind because it’s free and it has one of the most varied repertoires to offer; everything from baroque to modern music from around the world. It’s also a great excuse to get yourself to the museum afterwards.

National Museum of Scotland, until 25 Aug, 12.45pm.
