Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 Remember Me My Dere theSpace @ Surgeons Hall (Venue 53) Review Monday 21st August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

“Remember Me, My Dere” at theSpace@Surgeon’s Hall (Venue 53) is a performance of mainly 17th century Scottish and European street music, sung by Elspeth McVeigh accompanied by Calum McLeod on Clarsach (Scottish harp).

This is performance at its simplest – no lighting, no tech, no set, just two performers on stage performing beautiful music and song that has been passed down through the centuries.  As Elspeth explained, many of these songs are about love, often of the unrequited variety, which is a universal theme, and there was an exchange of music between Scotland and several European countries which has resulted in musical similarities still being evident today.

Elspeth obviously has a great love of these songs and gave a warm performance which brought them to life, singing in Spanish, Italian and French as well as English.  Calum’s playing was the perfect accompaniment, and he also gave solo Clarsach performances on two pieces.

If you want to escape from the 21st century for a short while and listen to some lovely old songs, this is the ideal show.
