Scotland 2013 - #4 - Edinburgh - free fringe music
In Edinburgh at festival time there's the sound of music everywhere. At the on-street stages on the Royal Mile, the HMV Garden in Princes' Street gardens, free music in many pubs and clubs all day long, on street corners or entertaining punters queueing at the Half-price Ticket Hut for a bargain
Where else would you find a busker like this?
But this is my favourite place - the National Museum of Scotland. Outside the streets are busy and bustling; inside all is calm and quiet.
I managed to catch three of the acts performing there as part of the Free Fringe Music events held at lunchtimes.
Jennifer Port playing the clarsach.
Skerryvore, a Scottish tradition fusion band that I loved and instantly checked out on You-tube when I got home
and the fiddle and piano duo of Rua MacMillan and Suzanne Houston
