About this Event

Having worked and toured with a whole host of prodigiously talented people (Boo Hewerdine, Sandi Thom and Jools Holland to name a few), she manages to remain grounded and focused, having released Pour Me A Drink on her own Twirly Music label. And while her music is undeniably anchored in the Contemporary Country genre, its flavour's blended with doses of Folk and Americana at its finest. Paying tribute to one of her biggest influences in Richard Thompson, Edwina played a sublime version of his Waltzing's For Dreamers, confiding that she - like Thompson - can't get enough of writing sad songs concerned with unrequited love. Still, it's when she's singing her own self-penned tunes that her talents really shine to blinding degrees, with the short-but-sweet Bend In The Road and Open The Show proving to be set highlights, as catchy and captivating as they are.

Edwina said she likes to be able to bring the songs she writes to people without using a record label as a middleman, favouring inter-net networking sites, such as Facebook, and playing lots of gigs to reach fans. In her opinion, it is possible, and even preferable, to enter the music industry without a recording contract dictating how things should be done - she prefers to do things in her own way. "You don't need to put yourself at the mercy of a record company. The plays I had on the radio had nothing to do with a record company," she said. "Artists such as myself are learning that you don't need a record deal any more. They tend to make a song into something completely different to what you are."

The self-taught singer-songwriter first picked up a guitar at school and continued to play when her family moved from Preston in Lancashire to Bridlington in 1994. She cut her teeth playing cover songs at Bridlington Folk Club in the mid-1990s until she moved to London in 1999 and started performing her own songs at open mic nights.
