Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 Elsa Jean McTaggart: Sings, Strings and Other Things theSpace @ Surgeons Hall (Venue 53) Review Friday 4th August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

Elsa Jean McTaggart makes her welcome return to The Edinburgh Fringe this year with Sings, Strings and Other Things, and the show is exactly what it says…a warm hearted trip with Elsa Jean McTaggart into her world of music and her own songs.  There are a lot of performers on this year’s Fringe doing their own musical shows, so what makes this one different and worth taking time out of your busy schedule to go and see?  The answer is simple, Elsa Jean McTaggart and her amazing voice, fiddle playing and genuine warmth with an audience.

This show is very much an open format of whatever Elsa feels like singing or playing depending on which direction her audience takes her, and vocal, guitar, fiddle, accordion all featured in this show at one time or another on songs and reels that included “Colours of The Autumn”, “The Phantom Fiddler”, “The Dingle Reel” and “The Sister Song”.

What makes Elsa Jean McTaggart so special (apart from obvious vocal and musical talent) is that rare ability to connect immediately with her audience and put them at ease, so that by the time you leave the show you feel that you have been invited into a good friend’s living room to share some music and good times with them.

As always, Elsa is one busy lady at the Edinburgh Fringe and there are two other shows this year from her -Elsa Jean McTaggart: Sounds of Scotland and Eva Cassidy the Story – both showing completely different facets of Elsa and her music.
