Come and unwind with us at this mellow New Year’s Day concert, now a fixture in the KGC calendar, with Edwina Hayes “the Sweetest Voice in England” – guaranteed to soothe sore heads!
Edwina is one of the finest female singer/songwriters this country has produced in years and brings together English folk, Americana and the rich Northern singer/songwriter tradition to create a sound that’s truly her own.
Highly accomplished she’s toured with such notable performers as Jools Holland, Van Morrison, Nanci Griffith and Loudon Wainwright III to name just a few.
Edwina numbers Michael Parkinson and Mike Harding among her fans and the title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her “the sweetest voice in England”.
Her cover of the Randy Newman song Feels Like Home was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister’s Keeper and has since had over ten million plays on Spotify and over thirty million plays on You Tube.
“Edwina is a haunting honeyed solo songwriter” (The Guardian).
“Sweet-voiced songwriter who has a fine line in gentle, country-tinged material” (Time Out).
