Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland's greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with the ‘40 Years Live’ concert tour, and we are delighted to announce that she is bringing the tour to Beverley.
From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of Western Scotland and learning how to street singacross Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf), Eddi's path soon lead her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with ‘Perfect’ and debut album ‘First of a Million Kisses’which stormed the charts in the mid 1980s.
Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and last years Cavalier. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the worlds greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including Folk, Jazz, Pop, World, Punk and even Classical work with various orchestras.
In 2019 Eddi guest starred with Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, released the ‘Starlight’ EP, played sold out headline shows, recorded a programme for BBC Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television's Songs of Praise and as part of (her friend) Billy Connolly's Made In Scotland series.
2020's ‘40 Years Live’ concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.
