The Dangeorus Harpist - Other Comedy Act - Belfast, Northern Ireland Event Location: Edinburgh 22nd May 2017
Another truly memorable Fringe experience. A gorgeous, flame-haired, crazy woman who has run off to the circus more times than most of us have seen one and now does things with a Paraguayan harp with which few stringed instruments could cope. She is enchanting and funny in equal measure, with a lovely, lilting voice that makes the words “Falls Road” sound like Brigadoon.

Spell is a fine and engaging piece of work, involving at every level. These are finely observed pieces, from the dreaminess of 'Faraway Eyes' to the vaudevillian feel of 'Excuse Me, Mr Hart', calculated to find favour, I think, with publishers and film makers, if not with A-list radio programmers. Spell is just what it says, both literal and magical. It deserves our fullest attention. A very fine record indeed.
