Eddi plays the Playhouse
Posted: 08 May 2015
Scots singer Eddi Reader brings her blend of
traditional and contemporary vocals to the Playhouse in Whitley Bay on 13 May.
From intimate gigs at local folk
clubs in her home town of Glasgow in the early 1980s, to harmonising with Annie
Lennox and making her debut on the silver screen alongside Zac Efron, Claire
Danes and the Jools Holland Orchestra in the 2008 Hollywood film ‘Me And Orson
Welles’, Eddi has enjoyed a remarkable career, becoming a notable figure in
contemporary British music.
Awarded an MBE in 2006 for her services to singing, she is best known for her
success with punk outfit Gang of Four and Fatal Attraction whose single ‘Perfect’ and parent album ‘First of a Million Kisses’
both topped the British charts.Following the success of her seventh solo album ‘Love Is The Way’ in 2009, Eddi
continues to draw fans to handpicked venues across the world with renditions of
songs written with her long-time writing partner Boo Hewerdine, life partner John
Douglas (of The Trashcan Sinatras) and collaborations with Irish
singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke – and even an Eddi/Fleetwood Mac ‘mash up’.
Touring the world has helped Eddi and her band form a unique relationship, as
her unforgettable vocals blend seamlessly with the rhythm of the music. She brings
life to all forms of song, with a selection of numbers from her latest album
and her career.
