The Edinburgh Fringe Archives – Lady Carol (Lost and Found, 2014)
Lady Carol, a Fringe stalwart then and now, back on the touring circuit of cabaret and festivals and the like, returned to the Fringe in 2014 with a mandolin and ukulele in tow,
Billed as a show with songs of spirited spite and tales of melancholic mischief, Lost and Found, has 30 songs, and 30 stories, and of course, you can’t get all of that into a single hour. The random nature guaranteed something different for every audience, kept the show fresh for the whole month, but perhaps made it difficult to review as presented…
…but this is a show where the performer, rightly, comes first and comes highly recommended.
I am always amazed at the huge, pitch perfect voice that the elfin chanteuse possesses, yet it can be soft and delicate also and this together with the lilting anecdotes between the numbers round the whole package off beautifully.
One 4 Review * * * * *
In the days before he got a bus, Bob Slayer had a bookshop. That bookshop was a Fringe venue. And in that venue was Lady Carol, so let’s head back to 2014 to be lost and found.
And remember, the show is over, don’t try and get tickets.
