International Performers [Part Deux]

Yesterday we highlighted some of the performers who'll be travelling to Buxton from other continents - so what about the Europenas who'll be with us (incontinent so-to-speak)?

In March Buxton's Club Acoustic was pleased to host a special gig headlined by Elrieke & Poldy - two singers/musicians from Holland. They went down a storm and they're back in Buxton in July (and possibly again in August at Beltane). During the Fringe they'll be at Underground Venues - doing four shows A Touch of the Dutch.

As part of the theatre programme - and performing in the Arts Centre Studio space - is a French company, La Petite Famille. Their musical play is called Tomorrow's Dawn and is described as "An original work by a young, fresh and sparkling French company. Lively, funny, sensitive, sometimes delirious, this musical is about love and friendship. It also explores inter-generational relationships. A kind of immersion into the heart of today's youth, in all its complexity." La Petite Famille are here from 8-10 July.

Finally, for now, is a homecoming of sorts. Steve Bellwood lives in the States now but grew up in Yorkshire. Part of the Spoken Word programme Steve is 'Intelligent, articulate, unique, hilarious.' (California Rogue). A seasoned stand-up story-teller, Steve revives his North country roots. A lively narrative and imaginative musings on mortality and time-travel, inspired by the recent passing of his Yorkshireman father.
Steve will be at Underground Venues during the last week of the Fringe.
