HIP HOP and one of Scotland’s most recognisable singers are among the attractions coming to Musselburgh this month.

The Brunton is one of the venues taking part in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and features live entertainment.

City Breakz, an outdoor pop-up hip hop performance trail taking place over unexpected places in Musselburgh, arrives today (Friday).

City Breakz will be popping up across Musselburgh for 50 minutes from 2pm before a finale at Fisherrow Links at 2.50pm.

The event is free but tickets must be booked for the finale; those attending should bring their own rug, seating is not provided.

Meanwhile, tensions and tempers simmer over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago in movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Legendary ‘Mother of the Blues’ Ma Rainey (played by the Oscar-winning Viola Davis), clashes with her controlling white manager.

Meanwhile, her ambitious young cornet player Levee, played by the late Chadwick Boseman in his final performance, is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry.

Based on Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s play, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is screened at 7.30pm on Wednesday at The Brunton.

Outdoors, Illyria presents Much Ado About Nothing at Musselburgh Racecourse, Loretto Lawn, next Friday (August 13). The classic Shakespearean comedy features Claudio, who loves Hero, and Benedick, who hates Beatrice.

The following day, Quantum Theatre presents Treasure Island at Musselburgh Racecourse, Parade Ring.

It’s pirate ships and salty old sea dogs in Quantum Theatre’s new adaption of the classic pirate adventure.

From the moment young Jim Hawkins stumbles upon a treasure map at the Admiral Benbow Inn, he finds himself embroiled in the murky underworld of pirates – and soon he is on the high seas in search of the pirate hoard.

Finally, Dougie MacLean, Scotland’s pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure who has developed a unique blend of lyrical, ‘roots based’ songwriting and instrumental composition, makes a special appearance.

Internationally renowned for his song Caledonia and the music for The Last of the Mohicans, his songs have been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller, Cara Dillon, Kathy Mattea and many other top performers.

He performs at The Brunton next Saturday (August 14).
