More about Edwina
Edwina’s 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. 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 six million plays on You Tube.
Edwina is often invited to guest on studio albums and support major artists on tour. As well as touring extensively with Jools, Van and Nanci Griffith, Edwina has also toured with artists ranging from Loudon Wainwright and Roger McGuinn to KT Tunstall and Gretchen Peters.
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.
The Guardian – ‘Edwina is a haunting honeyed solo songwriter’
Michael Parkinson – ‘A very talented young lady’
Nanci Griffith – ‘The sweetest voice in England.’
Time Out – ‘Sweet-voiced songwriter who has a fine line in gentle, country-tinged material’
Perez Hilton – ‘Like a soft blanket’

Introducing The Hall Brothers Band
Popular Yorkshire acoustic folk rock band, The Hall Brothers, celebrated 20 years of acoustic music in 2011.
Although Bradford-born brothers, Nick and Duncan, have played music together for as long as either can remember, they first performed as The Hall Brothers in 1991, at the Fleece in Addingham, West Yorkshire. In the twenty plus years since then they have gone on to record several well-received albums, entertained audiences throughout the UK, Ireland and Holland, have shared bills with an eclectic range of musical greats (including Show of Hands, Fairport Convention and the Wedding Present!) and have got to play with many of their heroes. This year, the brothers celebrate twenty five years of playing music together.
Yorkshire-born Brothers, Nick and Duncan Hall are usually joined by their long-standing fiddle player John Carey (formerly of Magna Carta).
“The playing was impeccable, the harmonies superb… a gig not to miss” – Nigel Schofield, Tykes News
“One of the best concerts I have had the fortune to witness” – Joe Grint, Fatea Reviews
