We’re delighted to announce that VF-UK University Finalists Semi-Toned will be joining us this Friday for our Edinburgh Fringe Showcase. With two days to go, they tell us a little bit about themselves and give us a frankly ridiculously exciting teaser about their set, which can only mean one thing…
Tell us a bit about your group. Where are you from? When did you start singing together?
Semi-Toned is an all-male A Cappella group from the University of Exeter. It started 4 years ago as a barbershop quintet, at a time when the university abolished its music department. Since then the group has gone from strength to strength, growing to 12 in number and now prides itself on its wide repertoire, ranging from Justin Timberlake to Ylvis, Quincy Jones to Jay-Z. This year the group has returned to Edinburgh once again to showcase their trademark musical charisma and wit, fresh from their 5 star debut at the fringe last year and their award-winning performances at the Voice Festival’s UK finals last year.
Can you give us any hints about what you’ll be singing in the showcase?
1 hint: Winter is coming…
Is this your only appearance at the Fringe, or will you be performing elsewhere?
Semi-Toned are performing their 5 star show ‘Toned Up’ (Broadway Baby, 2014) everyday this week at the Space Symposium Hall at 4pm. Get your tickets fast before they run out!
