Scottish songstress, Eddi Reader returns to Irish shores in 2019. She will be joined by her regular band members, John Douglas (guitar & vocals), Boo Hewerdine (guitar & vocals), Alan Kelly (piano accordion) and Kevin McGuire (double bass & vocals)
With her captivating and powerful performance, Eddi Reader has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers. What sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance and ability not only to move the listener, but also to connect her experience to that of her audience. Having first hit the limelight in the 1980’s with the group Fairground Attraction (who enjoyed huge chart success with their debut No.1 single ‘Perfect’ and album First of a Million Kisses), Eddi went on to collaborate on many celebrated projects throughout the years, famously harmonising with Annie Lennox while touring with the Eurythmics and paying her punk dues with a successful stint in the group Gang of Four.
However it has been Eddi’s subsequent solo albums that have cemented her image as a powerful figure in British music. With 9 critically acclaimed solo albums, 3 BRIT awards, a #1 single and MBE in tow, 2016 welcomed the release of her first career spanning compilation entitled, The Best Of, featuring material from across Eddi’s prestigious 30 year recording career.
Eddi Reader has announced that her brand new studio album Cavalier will be released worldwide on September 28 by Reveal Records. Featuring sixteen songs including recently performed live favourites ‘Wonderful’, ‘My Favourite Dress’, ‘Starlight’, ‘Meg O’ The Glen’ and ‘Maiden’s Lament’ the new album was recorded and produced in Glasgow, Scotland by Eddi Reader and John Douglas.
Cavalier is a new creative peak in an already prestigious career, just under an hour of new music, incorporating both contemporary and traditional songs.
