Ah – dear January. You are so often a month of long, dreary Sundays, broken resolve and rapidly-dwindling New Year hopes…
But not at R&B HQ! This month, we’d like to start as we mean to go on in 2015: by unapologetically apologising, with oor tongues firmly in oor cheeks. A celebration of the apology in its many varieties (I’m Sorry I Ate All Your Cheese; I’m Sorry I Broke Your Favourite Tea-cup/ Heart/ Mind; I’m Sorry I Voted That Way; I’m Sorry it’s the National Bard’s Birthday and We’re Totally Ignoring It, etc). Come hear the confessional, the reverential, the spittingly-caustic and the wittily marvellous in oor January line-up.
Welcome to The Apology Shop…
The indisputable Queen of UK performance poetry in a rare Scottish date! She’s sorry she is not up more often. To make up for it – check out her masterclass the next day at the Counting House! Read her full biog here.
The unapologetically experimental hip-hop duo!
You won’t be sorry to miss this wonderful woman with her unique interactive spoken word stories!
Up and coming Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter. Apologies, Henry’s Cellar Bar; we’re nicking one of yer music programmers for the nicht.
We recently judged the UK University Slam Championships and Jess Smith was on the winning team! That would be the Edinburgh Uni team. We’re sorry if ye may think that means we were biased. Come see her and ye’ll see we were not…
