Preview: Richard Michael and family on the Edinburgh fringe

Hilary Michael
Scots musician and educator RICHARD MICHAEL previews The Great American Songbook – St Marks artSpace Edinburgh, 21-3 August.

What’s the best way for a jazz musician to get together with his family? Rather than book a family holiday taking in St Marks Venice, why not, I thought, book a 3-night gig for the family in St Marks artSpace Edinburgh, as part of this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

Bass player nephew Paul Michael, daughters Hilary and Joanna on sax/violin and violin will play their own take on the Great American Songbook on 21, 22 and 23 Aug at 7.30.

Paul is active on the London jazz scene, having played Ronnie Scott’s with Julian Joseph. Hilary plays with the Academy of Ancient Music as well as jazz gigs, and Joanna is the leader of the New Edinburgh Orchestra.

And don’t miss out on the jazz at this year’s Festival – Ian Shaw, Lillian Boutte, Paul Kirkby and a host of others at various venues including the Jazzbar.

Richard presents his sell out show from last year, The History of Jazz Piano, also at St Marks artSpace on Saturdays 18 and 25, also at 7.30
