Eva Cassidy: The Story is a deeply personal, poignant tribute by Elsa Jean McTaggart to an inspirational voice and an incredibly talented musician who was discovered by the world tragically late.
Through video, voice and song Elsa presents a tribute to her all-time favourite artist Eva Cassidy. With her voice, guitar and piano accompaniment, Elsa brings alive the essence of Eva as she relates the songs to the beautiful and moving story of one of the world’s most iconic voices, tragically cut short by Eva’s untimely death at 33.
An icon of acoustic music, Eva Cassidy had the power to move audiences through her interpretation of well-known songs with wistful, emotional vocals and beautiful guitar accompaniment. Elsa Jean McTaggart’s show pays fitting homage to this true interpreter of song.
Elsa’s voice has been described as ‘smooth as velvet... sultry’ (Joe Simmons, Edinburgh Tonight) and ‘One of those very few people with a distinctive enough voice to do the music and songs of Eva Cassidy justice.’ (Tom King Southside Advertiser).
