Performing with Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra
With a career spanning over three decades, Eddi Reader has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers.
Though first brought into the limelight as front woman for Fairground Attraction – whose #1 single, "Perfect" and parent album, First of a Million Kisses, both topped the British charts – it was Eddi’s subsequent solo albums that signalled her ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own.
What sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance and ability not only to move the listener, but to connect her experience to that of her audience. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi Reader extinguishes the preordained boundaries of genre, bringing joyous life to all forms of song. 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.
Alongside a quintet from Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, Eddi Reader will perform her exquisite 2003 album, The Songs of Robert Burns, a timeless interpretation showcasing the poems of Scotland’s national bard, as well as other well-known favourites.
