Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland’s greatest living female voice. In 2022, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with a '40 Years Live' concert tour.

From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf) Eddi’s path soon lead her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with ‘Perfect’ and debut album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ which stormed the charts in the late 1980s.

Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes

8th September, 2022

Crail Community Hall

 

Barbara Dickson & Rab Noakes have been friends since they were 17 years old.  When young they sang and played together frequently as part of various line-ups.  Now they've reunited to play acoustic concerts and festivals where they will sing songs from traditional to 20th-21st Century, each chosen for meaning in both repertoires.  Rab's continuing reputation as a fine singer-songwriter and Barbara's as an interpreter of new and traditional songs with a contemporary edge will be their aim.  They come from the folk revival of the 1960's and their quality is rooted there. They are delighted to be 'going on the road' together after so long.

With the superb Anthony Toner as support.
