Eddi Reader is widely considered to be one of Scotland’s greatest singers.
Growing up in Glasgow and Irvine, it was in those towns that she first learned to use music as a vehicle for communicating with others whilst busking and performing at the local folk clubs.
In the early 1980s, Eddi’s band Fairground Attraction reached a huge audience when the single ‘Perfect’ and parent album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ both hit number one in the charts. Throughout the subsequent thirty years, Eddi has consistently released enduring solo albums and played thousands of memorable concerts, travelling the world with her music.
Time and again her records and concerts showcase a knack for great songwriting and picking a great song, then making it her own. Eddi’s 2018 concerts offer a chance to witness a live performer at the peak of her powers, with an incredible band and a devotion for great music. Eddi Reader is very much an artist alive in the moment each time she performs. Expect new songs, old favourites and a night that will live long in the memory.
