What's up Scotland?!?!?!

You know what really insults Scottish people? When you butcher their pronunciation of words. I was handing out flyers for MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM and when I incorrectly pronounced Lochend (which is where Venue 13 is located) it prompted a stern reprimand from two Scottish ladies. They proceeded to give me a lesson on the correct pronunciation and then told me to practice. I'm still practicing. Truth is we all are. We practice sometimes for hours straight in our flats, walking down the streets, in public places and more. When we get back to the States we will have the Scottish dialect perfected. Guaranteed!!

What's even cooler than the people is the all the cultures and people that have packed themselves in to Edinburgh for the festival. There are African Bands, Russian Ballet Dancers, Magicians, Comics, and people from all over the world in this city showcasing their talents. It's such an opportunity to be here representing Hamilton College and OURSELVES.

There's so much to do and plenty to see. But you can bet that the cast of MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM is out there rocking it every show!!!!!
