REVIEWS FROM EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL, August 2019
“ One of this year's early highlights... Turner and Adam have wrapped Stevenson’s words in the soft sounds of folk guitar and fiddle and steeped them in the home comforts of their gentle, parlour show. In their hands, imposing words like "Literature", "Classical" and"Victorian" just seem to melt away, leaving behind the soothing roll of Stevenson's poetry and the wild tales of his adventures across the world.”
“A ‘Treasure Island’ of a show….Touching, compelling and humorous”.
“Rarely can poetry have been so enriched by musicians as in this deeply moving performance”.
Professor Joseph Farrell, author, ‘Stevenson in Samoa”
“A sell-out success of our 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme, full of fun and wit, with sparkling songs and poems. Judy and Neil really know their RLS and that passion shines through!”
Daniel Abercrombie, Programme & Events Manager, Scottish Storytelling Centre.
“Affectionate and heart-warming” Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman. 6.8.19
"Don't miss this show - Furness Tradition brought it here to Ulverston - it's more than the story of RLS: it's great songwriting performance and arrangement aligned with a passion and understanding of a great life." Gordon Jones, organizer, Furness Tradition Festival, Ulverston, England : facebook
