Vocals and piano duo, DAVE AMOS and JAMIE JAUNCEY bring fresh flavour to favourite sing-along hits from the classic era of pop and rock.

Today they’re back on the road again with a programme of all-join-in classics, from Burt Bacharach to The Beatles, Carole King to The Kinks, Elton John to Stevie Wonder and many more. Warm and relaxed, Amos & Jauncey bring enough songbooks for everyone to sing along to… a great time is guaranteed for all!

By David Leddy

Horizontal Collaboration is a courtroom drama with a dark twist where sex, power and politics collide with emotion, seduction and destruction. Four steely U.N. lawyers read startling interview transcripts from their laptops in an explosive tribunal concerning ‘horizontal collaboration’ - the name for the supposed wartime crime of sex with enemy soldiers.

The courtroom’s intense stillness contrasts with the volatile narrative of African warlord’s wife, Judith K. who, after her husband’s assassination, becomes leader and takes her people on a treacherous path towards peace… or does she? Can women ever have the freedom to lead in a different way from men?

Penny runs various community singing groups in Edinburgh, as well as using music with patients and staff at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. She teaches multi-national music and song and uses song-writing to help enable people to find their own voices and voice their own experiences.
