The events listed here are only for the “solo” shows, i.e. the ones in which I sing my own songs and play double bass. I’m also out there playing double bass with other bands and artists, so you may come across me in situations where I don’t get a microphone and what a pleasant surprise that will be for you...,


Edinburgh Multilingual Stories Festival

 —  —


For the next few weeks I will be the musical artist for the Edinburgh Multilingual Stories Festival. My work will consist of workshops in various locations and with various local groups of all ages. There will then be a final concert at the Assembly Roxy on the first weekend in December, I’ll post a precise date and time soon. The Festival is the brain child of Theatre Sans Accents and ‘Bilingualism Matters’ at the University of Edinburgh. Bilingualism and multiculturalism are concepts I’m really passionate about: they enrich a person, families, communities and whole Nations. Scotland embraces diversity and does not shy away from the merging of cultures, because it understands it can only bring benefit and tolerance. This festival is hopefully the beginning of great things to come.


Roberto Cassani with Jon Mackenzie

Assembly Roxy, 2 Roxburgh Place, Edinburgh

As the musical artist in residence for the Edinburgh Multilingual Stories Festival, I get to do a final show playing, talking and singing about my experience of bilingualism and why it matters to me. This is a one-off show not to be missed (I think), because it’s in-progress-NEW and flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-FRESH. Plus the wonderful Edinburgh guitar god Jon Mackenzie will be accompanying me with his classy playing and rocking good looks. C’mon click on that ticket link my friend...
