Eddi Reader with special guest Kieran Goss
Sunday 6 November 2011
Eddi Reader was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction and their single 'Perfect' and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts.
Her subsequent solo albums have signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own.
From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings to joyous life all forms of song and what sets Reader apart is the depth and quality of her emotional performances; her ability not only to move the listener but to connect her experience to that of her audience.
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 contemporary British music.
Kieran Goss is delighted to be appearing as a special guest.
Long hailed as one of Ireland's leading songwriters and performers, Kieran Goss’s music has won him fans across the globe. In February 2010, Kieran’s new studio album, I’ll Be Seeing You, along with his considerable back catalogue, was released for the first time in the U.K. to huge critical acclaim. But while his albums have made him a star, his live shows have made him a legend. Live on stage is where Kieran Goss really shines. In the words of Rodney Crowell, a longtime friend and collaborator:
“I’ve toured with Kieran and watched him perform many times. I’ve seen him win the hearts of everyone in the room, not just with his great songs and instinctive musicality, but with his warmth and humour. It’s the performance of an artist at the top of his game, delivered with intelligence and integrity... Kieran Goss is one of Ireland’s national treasures.”
