FRINGE REVIEW – Graffiti Classics, Venue 150


Aug 15th – 16th.  19:40 (1hr 10 min)  @ Venue 150

For two nights only Graffiti Classics return to Edinburgh, a special place for them after their first festival show in 1997.
Graffiti Classics play pulsating rhythms from across the globe with mischievous humor.  From classical to gypsy and from jazz to romantic Graffiti Classics are bursting with energy. They are a very talented comical string quartet, with fantastic voices and dancing to compliment their playing.  Within the first song the audience is filled with laughter and are clapping along to a frantic tunes stirring from their 16 strings.  
Big base player, Cathal was a true comic with crazy facial cheek warbling expressions.  Background gurgling vocals and miming provided a quirky scene as did their string playing in unusual positions.
A great show of real toe tapping, clapping and whirling fiddle music, taking you from Celtic backgrounds to Russia and Romania with a big French finale.  If you can, go see Graffiti Classics and get some of their fun uplifting happy vibes, you won’t leave a sad person.
