I was invited by Tricity Vogue to photograph her Ukelele Cabaret at the Three Sisters, Cowgate, Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2010.

Despite the tickets being free, the evening was packed full of talented, funny performers, most of whom played Ukelele. About 90 percent of the audience had brought Ukeleles with them and joined in at the appropriate points. Tricity Vogue was an excellent compere, but the highlight of the show for me was Mat Ricardo of “Three Balls and a Nice Suit” fame who demonstrated the noble art of juggling. Juggling as it should be done. Not like you see on the street during the festival. A sophisticated display of cigar box juggling, cigar and wine glass balancing accompanied by razor-sharp wit.
