Event Details

The exuberant violin and cello duo High Heels and Horse Hair return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe following their acclaimed debut last year. Donning impractical footwear, the duo will perform an eclectic programme exploring the music of their homelands. High Heels and Horse Hair will traverse a kaleidoscope of sound worlds from Scottish Baroque to contemporary Australian times. The show Alba to Oz will unearth how the iconic cultures and landscapes of these two countries have influenced their music.
