Songbird: Ellyn Oliver sings Eva Cassidy

19:30, 14 Oct

Following the success of this event at Glasgow’s West End Festival, Ellyn Oliver and live band take the show around Scotland, performing some of Eva Cassidy’s much loved tracks from ‘Songbird’ to ‘Wayfaring Stranger’, ‘Fields of Gold’ to ‘Over the Rainbow’. Citing Eva Cassidy as one of her biggest influences, join Ellyn as she shares Eva’s story and pays homage to one of the greatest songbirds.

 

'Ellyn’s pitch perfect vocals combined with a ‘kick ass’ but sensitive band took us to every corner of our emotions and back again. Eva’s spirit and approach to her art were captured beautifully in Ellyn’s thoughtfully presented stories and anecdotes about her life and death. The whole night was wrapped up in Ellyn’s warm, unpretentious but thoroughly assured stage presence. The audience’s appreciation of quite simply stunning vocal performances, the superb delivery of a fantastic songbook and a precious life remembered culminated in a well deserved standing ovation.'
