Crash Bang Wallop!

What

Owen and Olly, twice-voted best music act at the Edinburgh Fringe, were up for a laugh as usual and shook up the idea of classical music at this high-energy family concert.

The lads were joined by two extra percussionist pals to demonstrate that the noisiest section of the orchestra can also produce fabulous melodies - lots were well-known from film and TV and had the audience guessing (and thankfully no ear plugs were required)!

The concert was rounded off in style thanks to the Fife Schools Samba Team! Owen & Olly had previously visited 4 primary schools (as part of a YMI music project) in preparation for the big performance - 79 pupils were on stage in the finale, showing off their new Samba skills! Some sensational playing, well done to all!
