  • Show Description
  • Artist Bio
  • Kurt Weill was one of the greatest theatre showmen of his day. He wrote music of biting satire and wit, with stories of cruel, calculating women, reaping revenge on the politics of war torn Europe.

    Chanteuse Taylor Wilson brings her 1930’s Berliner Cabaret to life with her multi instrumentalist band The Schadenfreudes.

    His music lives on, with great song classics – from Mack the Knife, Pirate Jenny and Alabama to September Song – sewn together in a tale of romance, rejection and revenge and told through the eyes of the many ‘Jenny’ characters that Weill and Brecht created in their wild Volksbühne theatre.


    “Take a Walk on the Weill Side is a rich homage to this time and to this man, and it’s a pleasure to see it done with the skill and intelligence it needs. The music is beautiful, filled with subtlety and nuance, and the three accompany Jenny with aplomb’’ – Edinburgh Guide

  • Taylor Wilson: Having explored avant-garde music and drama in Berlin and music theatre in Hamburg, Taylor has since performed in festivals across Europe, including Edinburgh Festival, both as chanteuse and as recitalist. Her versatility as singer and actress is leading her to acclaim as a recording artist, and in the theatre, cabaret and film world. Taylor regularly works with The Schadenfreudes , led by Music Director Karen MacIver.
