English Cabaret Hour

Directed by Tom Blackmore

'Sophisticated cabaret culture lets its hair down' MusicalTalk

'Casson is a seasoned performer and holds it all together as she sings original songs, including a tribute to political journalist Jeremy Paxman.... she has a great rapport with the audience and a gorgeous voice'


'as charming as the cupcakes handed out to the audience members

and a pleasant way to spend an hour on a drizzly Edinburgh day.'



For 2 years at the Edinburgh Fringe Casson played host at C South for English Cabaret Hour - also popping up al fresco, in tents and guesting at

New Town Cabaret, but always at the piano.  


New songs touched on how to stand out in a crowd, the insinuating appeal of modern music and the mystery of modern construction. The cabaret continues online. Click on the links below.

It was whilst English Cabaret was in Edinburgh that the story of Nicholas Reeves' new theory about the whereabouts of Queen Nefertiti's tomb broke. We were with Nick last time he was digging in the Valley of the Kings and wrote songs about his quest  - so a quick change to our setlist  was called for to bring us bang up to date! And a year later a whole new show was born...
