"One of the most powerful voices of the Fringe this year"

- EdFringe Review

Based on interviews with female-identifying practitioners across the music industry, A Beautiful Way to be Crazy is a tale of growing up and finding a voice.

 

Weaving together spoken word, live music, verbatim audio and a few teenage diary entries, award-winning poet Genevieve Carver and her live band (Tim Knowles, Brian Bestall and Ruth Nicholson) explore what it means to be a girl in the business of music – with a little help from Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Delia Derbyshire.
