Fête de la Musique

Wednesday 21 June 18:00-22:30

L’Institut français is celebrating a very international Fête de la Musique, France’s national celebration of music every year on June 21st.

This year’s programme includes

Children’s Harp Workshop [6.00PM]
by Ensemble Sangineto
A hands-on, fascinating exploration and explanation of the harp and the bowed psalter for all ages. Brought to you with the generous support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh.

Angus Munro [7.00PM]
A piano singer-songwriter in Edinburgh with a multi-faceted 4-octave vocal range that can break glass, Angus certainly cuts a unique and colourful figure in the Scottish music scene.
For the Fête de la Musique Angus will preview songs from his new EP Mirror Man.

Ensemble Sangineto [8.00PM]
A performance full of sparkling energy! Italian harp and bowed psalter duo, Adriano and Caterina Sangineto, focus on the fusion of ancient sonorities and harmonies with modern rhythms. Their performance and voices carry audiences away in a whirl of coups de théatre, drawing on the Italian tradition and fresh original compositions with a Celtic flavour.

The tones of a Celtic harp and a bowed psaltery (created by Michele Sangineto) intermingled with the powerful combination of their two voices.

In partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh.

Jack and the ’ (+the Apostrophe Ensemble) [9.00PM]
Jack and the’ is a pop project led by French musician Julien Lonchamp. The band has just released their second album of orchestral pop Melody Cycle to rave reviews from Paris to Glasgow.
The Fête de la Musique marks the end of Jack and the’s Melody Cycling tour with a special performance accompanied by the 7-piece Apostrophe Ensemble.

We are very happy to announce that the bistrot will be open with our friends from Pâtisserie Maxime offering a BBQ and bar throughout the evening.
