FRINGE – Edinburgh Spotlight Best Music Award 2010

Leave a comment

This year’s Fringe had a fantastic selection of musical acts, ranging from rock, soul and pop, through to some exotic and exciting world & traditional music.

Choosing three proved to be a difficult task indeed – and we therefore would like to give honourable mentions to Something Relevant from Mumbai, Ariul from South Korea and the fresh-faced charm of The Ukulele Project.

But, in the end, our nominations are:

  • The Magnets – supplying a unique take on a wide range of music these six talented men kept the audience engaged with their incredible talent, style, wit and general banter. Incredible entertainment from start to finish!
  • Jack L’s A Month of Mondays – a stunning performance at the Famous Spiegeltent from the epitome of cool, Jack L’s show was spellbinding
  • Camille O’Sullivan’s Chameleon – returning with a brand new set of perfectly-picked covers, Camille cast her spell over Fringe audiences with her enchanting and beguiling voice. Even pins were too bewitched to drop during her captivating show, which was a definite highlight of this year’s Fringe

And the winner is…

Jack L’s A Month Of Mondays

How Jack L is not already a Fringe legend is beyond us. For the duration of his set, the audience fall completely under Lukeman’s spell and one can’t help but feel thrilled by the discovery of such a huge talent in such an unassuming show. If there is any justice in the world, tickets for Jack L will be at an absolute premium next time he graces us with a Fringe appearance.

He therefore is awarded our

    WELL DESERVED. this was Jack’s 3rd appearance at the Fringe. third time lucky indeed. But we are lucky to be able to see such a fantastic REAL musician who manages to connect with his audience in a magical way. Am I a fan? You bet, for 10 years now. The guy just gets better and better! I told him he must come to CELTIC CONNECTIONS festival in Glasgow next year. The band was superb too.

    Have been a big fan of Jack’s for 8-9 years. I didn’t make the ‘Month of Mondays’ shows but have travelled over to his shows on 2 other years. Congratulations Jack on winning this award – glad to see that many others are experiencing the magic :)
