SLEEPSOUND by emerging Edinburgh Composer and harpist, Fiona Rutherford, is supported by Made in Scotland and was a commission for Celtic connections.

Described as genre crossing music, the small orchestra featured two fiddles, viola, keyboard, cello, double-bass and two harps. Three of the ladies sang in parts.

Sleepsound was a lovely ending to a Festival/Fringe day at Summerhall and the audience in the Demonstration Theatre enjoyed every moment. Rutherford is self-assured and confident in performance, but diffident in accepting the warm applause showered on the group at the conclusion. I do hope we’ll be hearing more of her work.


Run continues 13th and 14th at 10.30pm. £12/£10
