Joe Stillgoe

Paying homage to the big screen once again, Joe Stilgoe and his band return to the Fringe to perform a selection of jazztastic interpretations of songs from the movies. Stilgoe has a beautiful tone to his voice that makes listening to the crooner a real pleasure. Drawing on a broad range of films from across the decades, we’re treated to songs from the likes of ‘Jaws’ and ‘Groundhog Day’, then on to ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Three Men and a Baby’, plus plenty in between! It features fast-paced medleys and some of Stilgoe’s own compositions, while the band’s camaraderie brings humour and fun to the performances. Amongst the hustle and bustle of the Fringe, this is a wonderful 70 minutes of escapism.

Assembly George Square Gardens, until 30 Aug.
