About

My name is Catriona and I am a writer, performer and producer. You can't see me right now, but just know that I'm giving you the glad eye. 

Yes, you!

You see, I need your help.

In January this year, I asked my talented friend Finn Anderson to help me make a cabaret show. He is a singer, songwriter, composer and theatre-maker with a long list of impressive credits to his name. I thought he and Cat Loud would be a match made in heaven. Thankfully, he said yes, and we've been working hard to help Cat on her quest for cabaret stardom ever since. 

The show blends big songs with amusing stories (Cat loves an amusing story), but that's not the whole picture. Divas are complex beasts, and Cat wants to get more intimate, feel more connected.

In March, we performed 'Cat Loud's Big Night In' for the first time at The Project Cafe in Glasgow. Cat enjoyed it so much that she made it her mission to go to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

"Sure!" Finn and I said, in unison. 

ONWARDS. 

Risks and challenges

Taking a show to Edinburgh ain't cheap. The show up till now has been entirely self-funded, a situation all new performers and companies will be familiar with. Aside from the creative challenge of making a great quality production, our biggest hurdles are financial.

We are lucky enough to be performing as part of the Laughing Horse Free Festival. For those who aren't familiar with the Free Festival, it gives performers a space for their show AT NO COST. That's right. We don't have to pay for our venue. Which is a huge financial relief. However, though we have whittled down Cat's long list of demands (she's not getting a tiger), we still have to raise some funds to cover other vitals costs. These include:

• posters and flyers

• accommodation

• official Fringe registration fees (You can find our official Edinburgh Festival Fringe listing HERE: https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/cat-loud-s-big-night-in)

• advertising on the Free Festival website (http://www.freefestival.co.uk/)

• producing Cat’s first CD
(she's very excited about this one)

In addition to our eternal gratitude (and plenty of air kisses from Cat herself), we are offering a some excellent rewards. These range from a song of your choice recorded by Cat and Finn, a pair of Cat's pants (keep mum about that, Cat doesn't know), to copies of her CD.

The Edinburgh Festival is a hugely valuable platform for performers at every career stage, and we are excited to be part of it. Even if you just share this campaign with your pals, we will be hugely grateful.

Thank you, babes of the internet.

See you in August.

Catriona, Finn and Cat.

BIG THANK YOU to Cairan McLaggan for filming the trailer (COMING SOON) and the video you can watch above. He is a great human being, and went all the way across town for a new camera battery when the one he brought died. Hero.

Also, a big ongoing THANK YOU to Nick Patrick for flyer and poster photography and design. Check him out HERE: http://www.nicktakesphotos.co.uk/
