From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song in her mesmerising live performances.
She topped the charts with Fairground Attraction in the 1980s, winning three BRIT Awards, and is much heralded for her reworking of the songs of Robert Burns and a catalogue of solo albums stuffed with fantastic contemporary songs, many written especially for her. Eddi’s most recent releases – Vagabond, in 2014, and 2016’s double disc Best Of compilation, spanning her 30-year career – have both attracted widespread critical acclaim. Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music.

An Irish national treasure, John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, storyteller, poet, broadcaster and dreamer whose music transports the listener, especially in his enchanting live shows. Having sold over 100,000 albums in Ireland, his songs have been covered by Irish folk luminaries such as Christy Moore, Karan Casey, Solas, Mary Black and Sharon Shannon. Like his late friend Michael Marra, John has the rare gift of spinning pure gold from songs that are firmly rooted in his home town – in his case Cork – that have universal resonance and are by turns hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure.
