The Adelaide Fringe! Because he’s off to Australia next Spring to visit his sister in Melbourne, Majk has jumped in with both feet and booked himself a run of 10 gigs at The Basement, Featherstone Place, Adelaide, on the 21st-24th of February and the 28th February-4th of March (one gig per evening + matinees on Saturday afternoons) “because it’s on the way.” His show is entitled “One more cup of coffee, and then we’ll save the world”, and takes in two of his greatest passions, the environment and coffee.
He will have songs online to download before too long.
Majk’s new CD, Too Much Caffeine, is now available: he held a small launch gig on Friday the 13th of October at Daylight Robbery on Dublin Street and a small tour of Edinburgh over the Autumn.
Majk had three concerts in the Edinburgh Fringe last year, entitled “Make Tea, Not War”, 7-9pm on Saturday the 5th, Sunday the 27th and Monday the 28th of August, featuring special guests handpan drum player Milly Hoddo (5th and 27th) and storyteller Mark Borthwick (28th), at the Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria Terrace, EH1 2 JL. Between them they raised £373 (and 50 pence!) for the Meeting House’s designated charities this year.
Majk’s first CD, Scratch One, was a short-run fundraiser album for Akany Avoko, an orphanage in Madagascar, as part of a year-long national appeal that raised over £20,000.
Majk has written several songs for comedy cult project “The Enlightened Brethren of the Sacred Truth”
