As usual, we’ve been out and about dodging in and around the crowds and rain showers to bring you a flavour of the #EdFringe goings on, following on from Pauls post on the Fourth Monkey Theatre Company actors.

There are lots of characters out there, from locals to visitors to those in one of the myriad shows on at the moment. So far we’ve managed to avoid running into anyone, although brake lights on some of our tourists friends would help avoid potential trouble.

Safehouse – Allmans Project. #Live #Music #Edinburgh #edfringe .@theSpaceUK www.henni.photo

In case you haven’t come a cross them, Safehouse are an Edinburgh based band who play regular gigs around Scotland, specialising in a fantastic blues / rock /psychedelic mix that’ll get you going.

With additional drummer and conga player, they did an Allmans Project set over a few nights as part of the Fringe here in Edinburgh and bloody good it was too. The line-up was Gary Mees, Gary Davidson, Sky Tusk, Ali Petrie, Andrew Stirling, Mike Park, Sean Scott and John Bruce. The latter two being former members of Blues’n’Trouble – previously posted about when they had their 30th anniversary.

So here’s a set of shots we took…

Curry’n’Comedy. #edfringe .@VDEEPLeith .@imranyusuf .@PapaCJ .@ElvisMcGonagall

A great night of fine curry, craft beers, chat and then a wee cabaret set, hosted by Hardeep Singh Kohli, on Friday night at V Deep. In true Scottish understatement style – they weren’t too bad. I’m not a comedian, as most of you are aware, so I’ll avoid the a Sikh, a Hindu, a Muslim and a McGonagall walk into a bar joke, partly because that’s just factual. The boy Kholi was joined by Imran Yusuf, Papa CJ and yer man Elvis and a good laugh was had by all.

I bumped into Elvis McGonagall in the Gents, as you do, had a chat and then, being a photographer, grabbed some shots of him as we were leaving. Unfortunately, the other guys had already fled the scene, so next next time perhaps.

So, to the photos. Couldn’t just pick one, so here’s a selection for you. That there’s an expressive face…

Highly Recommended – Letters To Aberlour. #edfringe .@simonweir1 .@Letter2Aberlour henni.photo

A longer post than usual, but I’ve got stuff to say and some photos to share.

Letters To Aberlour by New Stride Productions is on at Just Festival at Central Hall (Flyer at bottom below). I got some shots of some of the cast on The High Street, which proved popular when I posted them last week.

Following on from that, I went along on Sunday night to try a Theatre photoshoot for the first time to see how I would get on. I had to catch the actors in costume just before curtain up, whilst the lights were being checked, so kept it simple and went with the fast Fujifilm XF 35mm Lens on the  XT-1 that I had on free 2-day trial from Calumet in Edinburgh.

Before I get to the photos, a quick word about Letters To Aberlour. After taking the shots, I stayed to watch the performance. Knowing nothing about it, I had a slight concern over what to say to the cast if it wasn’t any good, you know the awkward, well, um, it wasn’t too bad type comment, whilst you shuffle from foot to foot. Thankfully, it was an excellently acted, moving and well written piece of theatre. Given the production constraints of a Fringe performance, the cast of five managed to portray fifteen different character to bring to life the horrors, sacrifice and loss suffered during The Great War (World War One).

Given the preponderance of of documentation written about the war by the Officers and Upper Classes, it was both heartening and heart breaking to hear the stories of the ordinary soldiers and people at home through the letters written to Aberlour Orphanage.

In much the same way as the ‘Forgotten Voices Of…’ books painted the picture of life missing from traditional history books, this piece portrayed sympathetically what it was like for those caught up in it. It also has echoes of the highly recommended ‘McRaes Battalion’ by Jack Alexander, which deals with events closer to Edinburgh and nearby areas. More details on the latter are on the McRae’s Battalion Trust Website.

So, to the photos. These are of the actors Anthony Bentley, Patrick Capaloff-Fowler, Julia Jack, Simon Weir and Jonathan Durie, in no particular order. I’ve tried some post-processing filters to see how they come out, rather just doing my usual ‘straight’ monochrome, and included some colour too, just for the hell of it.
