Ayres of France, Graces of Scotland
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Elspeth McVeigh, soprano, returns to the Fringe with two concerts of unusual 16th- to 17th-century Scottish and French music, exploring The Auld Alliance. Gorgeous, rarely performed songs take you to another age of love, with all its joys and pain, expressed straight from the heart. In the words of one song Woe worth the tyme! Kristiina Watt, theorbo and Scottish fiddle accompaniment. (Her) singing has a storytelling quality to it, which takes the listener on a metaphorical journey. **** (BroadwayBaby.com). **** (ThreeWeeks). www.elspethmcveighmusic.com
