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.
Shetland Arts’ Marketing Officer, Lisa Ward, said: “From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song. Her taste in co-writers, writers, songs and players is impeccable and anything with her name on it is guaranteed musical treasure. We expect that the audience at Mareel will be in for a real treat!”
Tickets for this concert will go on sale on Wednesday 5 February via Shetland Box Office. Tickets cost £22.
