From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of west Scotland, to achieving huge international success with her band Fairground Attraction, Eddi’s musical direction has taken numerous unexpected twists and turns over the years.

First rising to prominence as a backing vocalist for bands like Eurythmics and Gang of Four, Eddi then joined Fairground Attraction, who stormed the charts in the late 1980s with their debut album First of a Million Kisses. Accompanying single, Perfect, was a number one hit in the UK and earned the band ‘Best Single’ at the 1989 BRIT Awards.

Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and 2018’s Cavalier.

Over the past four decades, Eddi has been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the world’s greatest concert and festival stages, and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including folk, jazz, pop, world, punk and even classical work with various orchestras.
