Multiple Fringe award winning musician Adam Page returns to the Fringe for a week of improvised sublime sonic eargasms.

One man, one incredible beard and so many instruments.  

19-21, 23-24 February, 7.00pm (Sun 24 Feb 4.00pm)
Meow Cafe  


Multi-instrumentalist Adam Page will wow you with his high energy, sense of fun and fantastic music with a show that engages all ages – and beard lovers!

Specialising in recording live instruments and looping them spontaneously to compose intricate grooves in many different styles on an array of instruments, Adam Page creates an eclectic night of up-beat music with styles ranging from funk to jazz, tango to classical and a hint of afrobeat. 

Starting with a saxophone, he'll loop its sound with bass, banjo, clarinet and even the didgeridoo. His range as a musician is not limited to just playing instruments – beat boxing or playing music from his beard(!) are added to the mix.
