One of the things I really want to do this year was get a few people up to guest on a tune or two on my show – Edinburgh is such a cool festival for meeting new artists and launching new projects that it’s great to get a chance to collaborate with people who are here to do their thing too.
My first couple of guests are now booked and as close to confirmed as you can be in Edinburgh – on Friday night this week, Guy Pratt will be sitting in, playing a bit of bass with me – Guy’s an outstanding musician, and has a fantastic show of his own on here at the Fringe.
And on Sunday, Ronnie Golden will be singing a song – Ronnie’s here doing a show with Barry Cryer – their show last year, Men In Beige was without a doubt one of the funniest comedy shows I’ve ever been to – two comedy geniuses at their best. Ronnie’s a ludicrously versatile singer, so I’m looking forward to hearing what he does with What A Wonderful World.
There’ll hopefully be one or two more still to be confirmed…by
