Three times Brit Award winner, Eddi Reader, will be at Cambridge Junction on Wednesday, May 3 singing songs from her new album, The Best of Eddi Reader, which is a career compilation, a double album of 30 songs.

Eddi grew up in Glasgow and Irvine, Scotland where she went busking and played in folk clubs. In the early 1980s, Eddi travelled around Europe with circus and performance artists before moving to London where she became a sought after session vocalist.

Eddi sang with Fairground Attraction and harmonised with Annie Lennox touring with the Eurythmics. It was Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience. The single Perfect and album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts.

She is a veteran of Cambridge Folk Festival and is acclaimed for work including her version of Moon River and Amy Winehouse’s Love is a Losing Game. The Sunday Times critic said: “Eddi Reader gets every song just right.”

7pm. Tickets, £24.50 (advance) from 01223 511511 or junction.co.uk
