The Night With… at the Edinburgh Fringe is part of the Made in Scotland Showcase. They are presenting nine concerts of five different programmes as part of the showcase.
Turning the Elements began as the name for the 2015 project which resulted in the two suites of song in tonight’s programme. As they evolved and performances developed, we realised that the name reflected perfectly what they do as a duo; taking music, both new and traditional, and turning the elements of each piece to fit our two instruments, the voice and the clarinet, and putting their own slant on their performance.
Turning the Elements has appeared at festivals around the country: StAnza Poetry Festival (St Andrews), Fringe by the Sea (North Berwick), Sound Festival (Aberdeenshire), Book Week Scotland (Jedburgh), and taken its programmes to the Isle of Arran, Campbeltown, Dundee and Aden Park in Mintlaw (with assistance from the Hope Scott Trust).
