Spoken word you can actually dance to.
Using a mash up of handcrafted loops and live guitarists, one of Edinburgh’s best known spoken word performers creates a new set of soundscapes for his storytelling. Literary heft meets rock gig in a show that explores the duality of the soul with stories in turns funny, moving and surreal.

Andrew C Ferguson has combined his words with music before [Kabarett, Unbound at the Book Festival, Illicit Ink] but this full length show is the culmination of a year’s preparations. Meet Spoken Word 2.0.

Is it rapscallion wordsmithery riffing on an A minor chord? We think so. Is it the long undead bastard twin lovechildren of punk rock and Fleetwood Mac squalling over a red Gretsch guitar? Quite possibly. Will you come out humming the tunes? Yes you will.

Hear the other side of the Jekyll and Hyde story; the new Old Testament Book of Bob; and those cheeky Utter Ballingristani nose flute players.

Duality Tango will feature Kelly Brooks [Gentlemen Prefer Blondie; Tribute to Venus Carmichael] and Mark Allan and Kenny Mackay [Isaac Brutal and the Trailer Trash Express; Shock and Awe].

Also special guests Gavin Inglis, and Dickson Telfer, bring their own unique combinations of spoken word and music to the party.

Reviews of Andrew C Ferguson:

‘Hilarious…’ Peter Ross, Scotland on Sunday [Literary Death Match]

‘Very cool…’ Kevin Gilday, Subcity Radio [Hyde’s Last Words]
