Clare Says Céad Míle Fáilte
  • Constant touring with her band has created a magical organic chemistry between Eddi and her players. Whilst renowned for her technical vocal ability, it is Eddi’s passion and instinct that combine to ensure she connects emotionally with her audience.

Growing up in Glasgow and Irvine, Eddi busked and performed at the local folk clubs before literally joining the circus in the early 1980s. After travelling around Europe with performance artists, Eddi moved to London where she quickly became a sought after session vocalist.  She famously harmonized with Annie Lennox, touring with the Eurythmics, after her time with successful punk outfit Gang of Four.

It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience.  The single 'Perfect' and parent album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts.



Constant touring with her band has created a magical organic chemistry between Eddi and her players. Whilst renowned for her technical vocal ability, it is Eddi’s passion and instinct that combine to ensure she connects emotionally with her audience.  Eddi’s new album, Vagabond, is due to be released on 3 February 2014, featuring her own songs along with songs by Boo Hewerdine, Declan O’Rourke and others.
