FRINGE PREVIEW – The Segue Sisters in … Jailbirds

The Segue Sisters

The Segue Sisters

We don’t want anyone to learn anything from our show,” says Carrie, one third of the Segue Sisters. “It’s for entertainment purposes only!”

And with a show not only featuring the trio’s unique 1940s harmonies take on hard rock music, but silly string and rubber ducks into the bargain, entertainment sounds as though it’s most definitely on the agenda.

“Our show is our spin on angry music by loud shouty men,” she explains, “sung in a sweet style by three girls. It’s quite fast-paced too and is a lot of fun.”

“I was sitting in a musical club one night and saw three people doing Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy From Company B and thought ‘that could be so much more fun'”, says Carrie. “I was a punk rock, metal-loving teenager, so I said ‘let’s do this’ to Charlotte and Kerrie, and we got a booking in London.”

The girls have now been performing together as The Segue Sisters for the last two years, and have proven to be a huge hit on the comedy and cabaret scenes.

“We never set out to be part of the cabaret scene,” says Carrie, “but we’ve been really lucky to become part of it. We were just in the right place at the right time!”

Before that, the Segue Sisters were actually born at Edinburgh itself.

“I was in Cannibal The Musical there with Charlotte,” says Carrie, “and I met Kerry at the same year when I was performing in two other musicals.”

After a number of guest spots at last year’s Fringe, they’re looking forward to bringing their solo show Jailbirds to Edinburgh this year.

“There’s lots of our friends performing,” says Carrie. “It seems like this year, everyone we’ve grown up with is doing their own show!”

You can catch the Segue Sisters speeding into town at the Gilded Balloon from 3-28 Aug (not 17) at 22:15. More details are on the Fringe website.
