Presented by Elsa Jean McTaggart
Friday 8th November at 7.30pm
A portrayal of the life of Eva Cassidy through video, voice and song presented by Elsa Jean McTaggart. A tribute to her all-time favourite artist, Elsa’s melodic voice and guitar, plus piano accompaniment, bring alive the essence of Eva. Throughout an evening of song, images and narrative, the beautiful, yet tragic, story of one of the world’s most iconic voices unfolds.
An icon of acoustic music, Eva’s wistful and emotional vocals and beautiful guitar playing had the power to move audiences through her interpretation of well-known songs until her untimely death at the age of 33. Elsa has devised this very special show to pay homage to a true interpreter of song. Elsa’s voice has been described as “smooth as velvet... sultry” (Joe Simmons, Edinburgh Tonight) and “One of these very few people with a distinctive enough voice to do the music and songs of Eva Cassidy justice.” (Tom King Southside Advertiser).
Eva Cassidy: The Story will be a deeply personal, poignant tribute by Elsa to an inspirational voice and an incredibly talented musician who was discovered by the world tragically late.
