Folk star Eddie Reader returns to Cambridge this month for a gig at the Junction on 23 June. Known for songs such as The Patience of Angels, Eddi’s storied life has taken her from her hometown of Glasgow to travelling around Europe with a circus and on to London, where she settled in the 1980s and became a sought-after session vocalist.
She famously toured with the Eurythmics and was part of punk outfit Gang of Four, but it’s her work with the warmly remembered band Fairground Attraction for which she’s perhaps best known, and which yielded much loved hits including the chart-topping Perfect.
From there, she’s gone on to assimilate many musical styles and released a handful of successful solo albums, as well as nods to her heritage with albums like Songs Of Robert Burns, that was released to international acclaim in 2003. Tickets are available for £25.
