Eddi Reader

Ballymaloe Grainstore
Doors 8:00 pm - Admission: €25

Scottish songstress, Eddi Reader returns to the Grainstore for what will surely be her fourth sold-out show in as many years. 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 musicís 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 1980ís 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 harmonizing 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 Eddiís subsequent solo albums that have cemented her image as a powerful figure in British music.
