Poetry Circus & the Jennifer Ewan Band: Summertime Blues: Formation Festival

20:30, 05 - 07 Jul

Summertime Blues is a non-stop cabaret-style assault of music, visuals and performance poetry; a badass medley of unsurpassable Cajun music (with a definite Scottish burr) paired with dramatic spoken word from some of Scotland’s most outstanding verbal performance artistes.

 

'One of the major players on the Edinburgh... spoken word scene'

The Scotsman
 

'Not only does Max Scratchmann possess the most deliciously suave of names, but he also loves to present the poetry-lovers of Edinburgh something different, something theatrical, something cool...'

Mumble Words
 

'A sassy cocktail of Cajun and modern sounds'

Metro

 

'The highest standard and absolute quintessence of performance poetry'

Mumble Words
 

'A sea of cabaret costumes: sequins, lipstick, coloured hair and stiletto heel glamour'

The Student Newspaper
 

'Max Scratchmann leads a troupe of fantastic performers, poets or otherwise, and leaves audiences with their minds opened...'
