Created by Michael John McCarthy and Martin O'Connor
Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh
14th-20th August 2017
Part of the Made in Scotland Showcase
Touring Scotland in 2018
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.
For the Fringe in 2017, 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.
Turntable will be touring Scotland in spring/summer 2018, and visiting the Here and Now Festival in Mannheim, Germany. For full tour details please visit the Red Bridge Arts page here.
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). Full review here.
