Free Fringe Music (National Museum Of Scotland)

By | Published on Monday 18 August 2014

Spent all your ticket money? Well, there’s still good music to enjoy for free, every day in the eclectic National Museum of Scotland in collaboration with Live Music Scotland. Today’s performers were young Latin jazz guitar duo Knox and Ion. They wasted no time creating a relaxed, airy cafe atmosphere in these vibrant surroundings, not far from the legendary Millennium Clock; even toddlers found them irresistible and tried to storm the stage. Their music was a mixture of their own compositions (including the lively, quirky ‘Mary’, in memory of Tom Ion’s granny) and standards such as ‘Isn’t She Lovely?’ for Frazer Knox’s new fiancée. Accomplished and likeable, with a talent for composition, this pair’s offerings made for an enjoyable working lunch.

National Museum Of Scotland, until 24 Aug.
