A ‘per­fect’ evening with Eddi Reader

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

A jam-packed Tar­bert Vil­lage Hall wit­nessed some­thing spe­cial on Fri­day Novem­ber 30 as plat­inum-sell­ing, Brit Award-win­ning singer/song­writer Eddi Reader and her band rolled into town to play a spe­cial St An­drew’s night show for Clachan Vil­lage Hall Devel­op­ment Fund. Armed with a few songs – some old, some new from stun­ning new al­bum Cava­lier

– Eddi played a won­der­ful set and told some crack­ing sto­ries for good mea­sure. Open­ing with Char­lie is My Dar­ling she had the crowd eat­ing out of her hand through­out the set. It was a truly mag­i­cal night and rounded off with her and Fair­ground At­trac­tion num­ber one sin­gle Per­fect and Robert Burns’s Wil­lie Ste­wart.

Eddi was sup­ported by the fan­tas­tic young Tar­bert band Na Sme­o­raich, Clachan duo Raph and Eilidh and the Tar­bert Gaelic Choir, all of whom added to a won­der­ful evening’s en­ter­tain­ment.

The or­gan­is­ers hope to be able to bring Eddi Reader back in 2019 such was the de­mand for tick­ets.
