Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013

Wow. Pretty awesome that I was up there. Busy, busy. Although I was playing there on the first weekend so not can’t-walk-down-the-street busy. Met a bloke with really awesome Steampunk type outfit that was handing out flyers for a comedy play which sounded brilliant but sadly we had a train to catch *sad face*

There was also this lady. Ya know those statue people. When you donated money she danced, it was rather hypnotic.

Walking back, another arty-farty lady was drawing on the inside of a shop the sky line of Edinburgh. Which was cool in itself, but what was extra cute was the three children that sat down in front of her on the other side of the glass absolutely captivated.

Would love to go back next year just for the fun of the festival. Although it would be amazing if I were playing at the again… *not a major hint at all*

The Waffle TV lovelies (from Wickerman) found me and we did a quick interview, so the video of that is above. They also kindly filmed a live busking type version of San Francisco which featured this hilarious contraption, a microphone taped to a bass drum mic stand, taped to a stool The Mic-inator 1000.

 

 

 Also bumped into lovely Evie. The little gem who sent me this.

All in all Edinburgh was fun, stayed with some friends, ate some nice food, walked a lot. Basically had my dose of cityness.

Thanks for having me Edin!

P.S I bought spogs/spoggs naturally

Singing For My Supper

Following on from a couple of REALLY busy weekends, I was looking forward to a quiet one when my Mum got a facebook message:

“Would Zoe like to sing in the streets of Dumfries tomorrow?”

A little bit of an odd request, but it was all part of The Big Burn’s Supper – you can read more about that by following the link, but I got involved by singing (just me and my uke) on a Saturday afternoon to unsuspecting shoppers in the middle of Dumfries.

I was a little unsure at first but ended up having a great time. I started off outside but it was so cold I couldn’t feel my fingers so my Mum, who’s a hero by the way, spoke to the management of the indoor shopping centre and we got permission for me to perform in the warm.

I really enjoyed myself and I got loads of compliments from people of all ages and was even interviewed by a local radio station.

We gave a lift to my talented, musical friend Calum, who was also asked to perform, but he braved the freezing temperatures and stayed outside for about two hours. A huge gold star to Calum.

You should really check out Calum’s facebook page too, he really is very good.

We finished off the day with a bag of chips each and a lovely cup of tea at Calum’s parent’s (Our good friends Cathy & Liam)

So, overall it was a great day, not the quiet one I was expecting, but a wonderful one with some fab memories.
