Emily Snee Is Bifurious (Emily Snee / Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 24 August 2014

Emily Snee decided to give up comedy a month before the festival, but had already booked an hour slot. So instead, she’s doing an hour of acoustic, folky songs on a tiny, tiny guitar. Not quite what the audience were expecting, but lovely nevertheless. Snee gives a little intro to each song (her refrain seems to be “and then I wrote a song about it…”), demonstrating natural stage presence and charm. Her songs mainly focus on past relationships going wrong, and about hoping for more from love. It’s sweet, heartfelt stuff, strangely sedate amidst the noisy maze of the Three Sisters. With this quiet start to an inevitably frantic Fringe day, Snee will make your heart hurt a little bit.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 24 Aug.
