 On February 14th Rob and I visited the Kransky Sisters last show at the Fringe, and we were very glad we went.

The Kransky Sisters are an odd trio of performers - I first saw them on Spicks & Specks in passing and thought their humor was very amusing, and a little close to home for some of my relatives.  But they stuck in my head from that one performance I saw years ago and when they came up in the Fringe I really wanted to see them.

Imagine 3 rather dotty old and somewhat sheltered spinster sisters with an unusual upbringing from the wilds of Queensland. Add to this rather lovely singing voices, slightly eerie pleasantness and the ability to play standard and non standard instruments. Also the hottest tuba solo you may ever hear.

I'm always interested in non standard instruments - the 60's vintage reed keyboard I think it was, some lovely theremin qualities from the musical saw, a kitchen pot and also a toilet brush. And classical instruments being played in a non standard way - some very lively tuba playing too, to cap it off.

Their renditions of songs they learned from the wireless are very funny and very clever. The argument two of the spinsters apparently have integrated into the middle of Bohemian Rhapsody  is a fine example of the imaginative fun that's to be had. 

And there are others. I hope to see more of this eerily endearing trio, and I really hope that they put out a CD of this Piece of Cake tour.

If there'd been CD's on sale I would have grabbed one. They did have tea towels and  such like but not quite my cup of tea.

9/10 ebullient and on the Sid and Nancy scale - a celebratory Devonshire Tea with the Adams Family after we've all rescued Cora and Clarice from Steerpike.
