The Alan Kelly Gang team up with Scotland’s internationally acclaimed and mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader, of Fairground Attraction fame and Trashcan Sinatra’s guitarist and songwriter, John Douglas. The result is sheer musical synergy in its most natural form. Once a collaboration, now a band, their performances have been praised for leaving audiences spellbound; Scotland’s The Living Tradition magazine has described it as ‘an astonishing concert’.

Eddi Reader has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers, with an MBE, a number 1 single and 7 acclaimed solo albums behind her, what sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance; her ability not only to move the listener, but to connect her experience to that of her audience. Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi extinguishes the preordained boundaries of genre, bringing joyous life to all forms of song.
