Scottish singer Cat Loud returns to VAULT Festival for one night only with her Origins Award-winning show, revamped with even more apocalyptic urgency!
If imagining the end of days was an Olympic sport, Cat would take gold for Britain. And then trade her medals for cans of beans and moonshine at the European border.
In increasingly bleak times, Cat examines regret, anxiety and hope in this biting and touching satire, featuring an eclectic mix of songs accompanied by Fraser Parry on cello.
Known for dusky vocals and biting wit, Cat Loud is a jazz singer, cabaret performer and writer based in Edinburgh. A regular at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, she debuted he first show Cat Loud’s Big Night In in 2015 to five-star reviews, and her most recent work – Good Morning, Billie!, a celebration of jazz icon Billie Holiday - premiered in 2018, in collaboration with Edinburgh-based blues collective The Blueswater.
She has toured the UK and has performances the Brighton Spiegeltent, VAULT Festival and Croydon Cabaret Festival under her belt.
Her most recent solo apocalypse cabaret To the End of the World! won a VAULT Festival Origins Award for Outstanding New Work in 2018.
She sings jazz in and around Glasgow and Edinburgh with musicians she loves and whoever will have her.
