Bowjangles - Excalibow

at Dining Room, The Gilded Balloon

1st to 26th August 2018 (no show 13th) at 2pm

Bowjangles are a string quartet who can really play. They dance whilst they play. They sing whilst they play. They leap, tumble, juggle and joke whilst they play.

In this new show marking their 10-year anniversary Bowjangles tell the somewhat ludicrous story of their journey to find the most priceless relic of all- a mysterious violin bow known as Excalibow. You’ll love Bowjangles’ inimitable and unique style, full of laughs, boundless energy, and almost every musical genre you can imagine. WARNING: May contain traces of Abba.

If you like music, song, dance and comedy, you will love Bowjangles. This multitalented four-piece not only play their instruments superbly, they leave their audience in stitches of laughter – and incredulous. Bowjangles use every style and genre of music you can imagine in energetic and hilarious stage shows which takes string quartet performance to a whole new dimension, and brings old style Music Hall Vaudeville into the 21st century.

"Every element of this fast-paced, one-hour show is performed to an exceptionally high standard. The vocal and instrumental work alone is astounding, but when this is combined with seamless physical movement, precise comic timing and engaging character development, this performance becomes something very special. The improbable, witty plot of Excalibow provides a platform on which to incorporate all the talents of this skilled ensemble. It is difficult to describe the performance Bowjangles create. I do not think it would be an overstatement to say that it seems highly unlikely that there will ever be another ensemble performance like this. Excalibow is an hour of joyous Fringe fun, underpinned by admiration and amazement at the creativity displayed by this hugely talented cast." – ★★★★★Fringe Review

"A good string quartet is one thing, but a good string quartet that can play at the same time as managing high energy choreography, singing in harmony, and spinning a yarn is quite unique.. their family-friendly show is a unique experience not to be missed" – ★★★★Ed Fest Mag
