August in Edinburgh is full to bursting with entertainment so this weekend was one of watching comedians and a prequel to Macbeth and lots of pipebands.
Having studied and enjoyed Macbeth at school I have been collecting different interpretations of the play and there are always several a the fringe. This year I didn’t fancy a 2 person, Chinese mime version but a prequel appealed – according to this playwright Lady Macbeth was the ambitious one and had angered the witches which prompted them to meddle.
On Sunday there was a pipeband display – 17 groups marching through the old town and then playing together as a mass band – I do enjoy bagpipe music when it is outside (not keen when confined by walls and echoing) and they were playing well known, tow tapping tunes. The backdrop of Arthur’s seat seemed the perfect setting
Hope you all have some toe-tapping in your week – waving to everyone, especially Sian.
