Kim Edgar is hoping her Festival Fringe gig will raise awareness of social injustice.
The singer and pianist originally from Queensferry will be performing songs from her albums, ‘The Ornate Lie’ and ‘Butterflies and Broken Glass’ in Stockbridge Parish Church at 8pm on Saturday, August 24.
With a style that has been described as “a heady cocktail of Carole King and Regina Spektor” Kim combines narratives of courageous honesty with delicious melodies.
Kim is also using her show as an opportunity to fundraise for Amnesty International, performing song requests and dedications in return for a donation, and a raffle with prizes including donations from local businesses.
She said: “I’ve been a member of Amnesty for many years and hope the gig will raise awareness and funds for the great work they do.”
Tickets are £10/£8 from the Box Office on 0131 226 0000. For song requests and dedications, email firstname.lastname@example.org
