Free Wednesday concerts at St Giles’ Cathedral

When visiting St Giles’ Cathedral yesterday with out of town guests, we stumbled across their free Wednesday concert.

Starting at 12.15pm every Wednesday lunchtime, pianist Will Pickvance curates short concerts of whatever he and his music colleagues are working on that week.

Great classical works are interspersed with original items, influenced by jazz, folk and music hall.  We thoroughly enjoyed listening to the variety of pieces, including a special version of I’d Rather Go Blind by Etta James.

Regular contributors are concert violinist Feargus Hetherington and Hungarian double bassist Balazs Hermann.

There was a mixture of residents attending solely for the concert and happy tourists who had stumbled across the musical hour in one of Edinburgh’s most beautiful buildings.

These concerts are scheduled to take place every Wednesday at 12.15pm until further notice and last approximately one hour.
