Broadway Baby has a cheeky little chat to Countermeasure: 14 Characters, an a cappella group from Toronto, Canada.
The group is made of people from various professional, educational as well as musical backgrounds, but the one thing we share in abundance is our passion for music.
Tell us about yourself….
We’re a 14- person a cappella group from Toronto, Canada! We’ve been singing together for six years now, and believe that our greatest strength is our diversity. The group is made of people from various professional, educational as well as musical backgrounds, but the one thing we share in abundance is our passion for music. We pour our diversity into our show to produce a new and exciting flavour of a cappella!
Do you come here often?
This is our first time at Fringe, but we toured to Edinburgh back in January 2015 and loved it so much that we had to come back! We didn’t get to stay very long last time so we’re looking forward to having a few weeks to explore the city and take in the festival.
Who do you most want to meet at the festival?
Would we be greedy if our answer is everyone? This year’s lineup has so many amazing shows and events that we feel there are plenty of things to amaze and delight all fourteen of us!
What’s your favourite Edinburgh bar or restaurant?
We’re from Canada so our mission is to discover that while we’re here! Have any recommendations?
Broadway Baby suggests Vittoria On The Bridge!
Are you monogamous to EdFringe, or do you date other festivals?
Well, long-distance relationships are hard! Our first love is SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival which we started five years ago... but our hearts certainly beat faster when EdFringe came calling!
Can we get a second date?
Cheeky! Call us, we’d love some EdFringe and chill… ;)
