Edwina Hayes will be bringing her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and angelic voice to the Canopy Theatre in Beccles on Saturday 28th September - a quick return to north Suffolk by popular demand following an exceptional gig at the Seagull Theatre in Lowestoft in January, which was her first visit to Suffolk in over 5 years.
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 full in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister's Keeper and has since had over eight million plays on You Tube.
Edwina is based in East Yorkshire and has toured with artists ranging from Loudon Wainwright III and Roger McGuinn to KT Tunstall and Gretchen Peters. Dividing her time between the UK and America, her second home is Nashville where she is much loved and in demand as a songwriter and performer.
She has an eclectic range of influences from Bob Dylan and Carole King to Van Morrison and Gillian Welch. Her debut album 'Out On My Own' was issued by Warner Brothers to critical acclaim. Produced by 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 more acoustic second album 'Pour Me A Drink' independently to great success and followed in the same style with third release 'Good Things Happen Over Coffee'. Touring constantly (including trips to China and Australia) she continues to attract great reviews and fans worldwide and is currently working on her long awaited 4th album.
