MJ McCarthy and Red Bridge Arts
Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh
14th-20th August 2017
Part of the Made in Scotland Showcase
Info on the Turntable workshop and pop up record shop here.
Turntable started when MJ McCarthy and his Great Aunt Kathleen - 55 years his senior - connected over a stack of vinyl. Since then the Turntable team have toured her record case around Scotland, inviting listeners of all ages to investigate its contents whilst reflecting on the importance of music in their lives.
At this year’s Fringe, the Turntable invitation is extended to the people of Edinburgh. Stories and memories will be gathered at workshops throughout the city. These encounters will inform a series of performance events featuring special guests and a soundtrack chosen by you.
If you have a chance to see Turntable, then take it...it will make you smile, laugh, feel moved but most of all put a tap in your foot and a song in your heart ★★★★★ (Edinburgh Reporter)
