published on 30 Jul 2015

Salvation Army singer Matt Ramsay says he can't wait for his first taste of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The 26-year-old, from East Kilbride, will perform a one-off show on Saturday August 15 at Venue 405 - otherwise known as The Salvation Army's Edinburgh City Corps on East Adam Street.

Matt, who is the deputy songster leader at our Govan church, will perform a show packed with a mix of songs accompanied by tales of his experiences of growing up with music.

Matt said: "This is my first time performing at Fringe. It's something a bit different and I'm looking forward to it. It's a great venue and it'll be a privilege to be on a bill with so many great performers."

The Salvation Army venue will also feature evening shows by concert singer Marjory Watson and a series of daytime performances from the likes of classical music trio Triquetta, singer Val Fierno, music students from Perth college and the group The Good, The Bad and The Soprano. Venue 405 will have something on every day from Wednesday August 12 to Saturday August 15.

Youth Officer Captain Gavin Friday said: "It's great The Salvation Army is providing a performance space and a platform for young people to showcase their musical talent. Venue 405 is also a Christian space where we invite the community to connect and engage with our shows."
