Unlocking hidden stories behind songs

Encounters Image 2016 - EDIN



Exciting young singer, Lily Casson, brings a new spin to some of her favourite songs, some familiar, some worthy of wider recognition, but all sharing the theme of an unexpected or casual encounter with someone or something. In this enchanting and personal show, Lily unlocks the hidden stories behind these songs whose composers include Lerner and Loewe, Stephen Schwartz, César Franck and Bob Chilcott.  


‘A young performer to watch, at future Fringes and beyond. Lily Casson is an outstanding singer’

‘Lily Casson doesn't need any X Factor tricks to showcase her voice.'
