Edwina Hayes *
Edwina Hayes numbers Michael Parkinson and Nanci Griffith among her fans. Her beautifully written songs and charming stage presence 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 and the title song 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.
Support: THE HOOLIES
In less than a year the Wivenhoe based Hoolies have established themselves as a popular and entertaining shanty group. Featured on Radio Essex, they have been described as ‘blowing up a storm locally’ for their original and heartfelt versions of shanties and maritime folk songs. They will be performing at Harwich International Shanty Festival in October.
