Edwina Hayes (26th January)

The Courthouse Thirsk
Saturday 26th January

Edwina returns to The Courthouse with her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. 

She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing stages everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall. The title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England' and 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 eight million plays on YouTube.

Doors open 7.30pm.

Please note: you will not receive a physical ticket. Please use your email order confirmation as proof of purchase.

Check out this recent live performance of Edwina's at FortyFive.

Description

Edwina Hayes

Edwina was born in Dublin and grew up in Preston, Lancashire before moving to the East coast of Yorkshire as a teenager, where she has been based ever since. Dividing her time between the UK and America, Edwina's second home is Nashville where she is much loved as a songwriter and artist.

Having signed with Warner Chappell Publishing and with an eclectic range of influences from Bob Dylan and Carole King to Van Morrison and Gillian Welch, Edwina released her debut album 'Out On My Own' on Warner Brothers to critical acclaim. Produced by Clive Gregson and Nick Drake producer John Wood, the record featured Dr Hook's Dennis Locorriere as a guest vocalist and became a favourite on Michael Parkinson's BBC Radio Show.

Edwina released her second album 'Pour Me A Drink' independently to great success. Much more stripped down and acoustic, Nanci Griffith covered the title track and Edwina's version of Feels Like Home was played in full in the major motion picture 'My Sister's Keeper' starring Cameron Diaz and Alec Baldwin. Edwina followed in the same style with her third release 'Good Things Happen Over Coffee' and touring constantly continues to attract wonderful reviews and fans worldwide.

Edwina toured as support with Fairport Convention on their UK Wintour 2014, toured China a few months later, toured Australia in Spring 2015 and her latest album was released in 2016.
