JUDY Collins has been making music for decades, five of them at that.

She issued her debut album A Maid of Constant Sorrow way back in 1961, but her passion for sounds isn’t lessening and she is live at The Stables this evening.

While she lets her voice do the singing, over on Stage 2 Alex Horne & Rob Deering present an Edinburgh Fringe preview.

This is your chance to join a couple of familiar faces as they plough through their new stuff for a bargain price.

It’s a win-win for fans of the funny.

Another name who has been at his craft for a cracking amount of time is Alan Price.

The man with the voice behind House of the Rising Sun was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the mid-nineties, and small wonder, for he has a wealth of other musical aces to his name, including a slew of hits with Georgie Fame...catch him on the stage tomorrow evening.

The Enid arrive on Saturday night, and Robert John Godfrey’s band promise a set of old and new material.

‘The Orb meets Pink Floyd meets The Berlin Philharmonic,’ reckons Time Out.

Split with £17.50 and see what you think.On Sunday afternoon, new city sensation Ben Westlake will be joined by Daniel King Smith for a fetching classical show, in a programme featuring pieces by Debussy and Brahms.

Join the classy clarinettist who in 2010 reached the Woodwind Final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year contest, at 2.30pm. Tickets are £13.

Rising comedy star Bo Burnham is tipped for big things and is already making big strides – in 2010 the American fella went down a storm when he debuted at the Edinburgh Festival, returning home with plenty of five star reviews and a wealth of critical acclaim.

Hope he got those through customs with no problems...

Bo also bagged the Spirit of the Fringe Award, and was the youngest performer nominated for the Best Show Award in the festival’s 30 year history.

It is fair to say that Bo is a YouTube smash too, with a whopping 70 million hits worldwide.

Burnham will be at the venue on Sunday night with a show that toys with language, showcasing his intricate wordplay and ability to pack jokes one on top of another.

The Times say simply that the 20-year old is ‘a phenomenon’.

Joining the comedian, singer-songwriter and musician will cost you £15.

On Wednesday, Barry Cryer presents Butterfly Brain.

Barry will be on an alphabetical, hypothetical journey from A to Z, and from Ardvark to Zula.

Strong language and adult material is fairly certain to figure.

If you can handle that and like the sound of the performance, you need to be seated at the Wavendon venue in time for 8pm.

Call the box office on MK 280800.
