Harry Baker and Gecko: Edinburgh previews
June 7, 2022 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Harry Baker and Gecko are taking brand new shows up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and wanted to share them with the wonderful people of Margate First! The last time they shared a stage they won a BAFTA so it’s bound to be special.
Singer storyteller Gecko tours the UK in support of his second album ‘Climbing Frame’. Pronounced ‘Album of the year’ in the Morning Star newspaper, Gecko’s playful songs cover the big things in life with wit and warmth. Gecko has previously appeared at Glastonbury, Bestival, BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, BBC Scotland, BBC London & the Edinburgh Fringe. He has shared stages with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Loyle Carner, Tim Minchin & Billy Bragg. In November 2020 he appeared on the Bafta-winning TV show ‘Life & Rhymes’ on Sky Arts. In March 2021 his song ‘Rapunzel’ went viral on Tik Tok gaining over 200k views in under 48 hours.
‘He’s a work of art’
World Poetry Slam Champion and Margate local Harry Baker’s heart and humour has been watched by millions online and allowed him to perform all over the world, until suddenly he couldn’t. From reviewing toilet seats online to writing falafel-based diss tracks for Chris Evans, he’s back on stage where he belongs with his most heartfelt, playful, unashamedly Harry Baker-y show yet. “Spectacularly Witty” ***** (Whatsonstage) “Blistering wordplay” ***** (Threeweeks) “Not one syllable out of place” ***** (The Wee Review) “The Spell Over The Audience Is Tangible” ***** (Broadway Baby) “Simply put… The greatest performer on earth” ***** (BBC Radio 1).
