In a career spanning over 30 years, the eclectic singer-songwriter Eddi Reader went from performing at local folk clubs in her native Glasgow to harmonizing with Annie Lennox, touring with the Eurythmics, and performing alongside Alison Moyet and The Waterboys.
Perhaps it was the short-lived but warmly remembered band Fairground Attraction that brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a wide audience.
The single ‘Perfect’ and parent album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts.
Since then, she has recorded ten solo albums, including the 2003 classic Songs of Robert Burns.
From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song.
Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in today’s music scene. She was most recently seen in the line-up of Scottish talent taking part in the Glasgow Commonwealth games opening ceremony.
In the beautiful setting of St Mary in the Castle, Eddi will be presenting very personal folk-infused songs from her latest album release, “Vagabond”.
Seats (£19.50 and £23.50) can be booked on 01323 841414 and at Music’s Not Dead in Bexhill, but not in advance from St Mary’s In The Castle.
