Hornsea Museum has been lucky to engage local singer / songwriter Edwina Hayes for a really special outdoor musical evening on June 23rd. She recently returned from a tour of engagements in the United States and has managed to squeeze us into her tight diary.
Edwina Hayes numbers Michael Parkinson and Bob Harris among her fans. Her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel 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 track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England'.
Her cover of Randy Newman's Feels Like Home was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister's Keeper and has since had over two million plays on You Tube.
As well as her own gigs, Edwina is often invited to support major artists on tour and over the last few years has also opened shows for Nanci Griffith, Roger McGuinn, Gretchen Peters, Ricky Ross, Loudon Wainwright III, Roy Harper, Tommy Emmanuel, Sam Baker, Julie Fowlis, Sandi Thom, John Tams & Barry Coupe, Daniel Beddingfield, Chris While, Julie Matthews, Tom Baxter, Boo Hewerdine, KT Tunstall, Clive Gregson, Chris Difford, Glenn Tilbrook, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Justin Townes Earle, Isla St Clair, Eric Bogle, Ruby Turner and Lulu.
With a pedigree like that, we're bound to be in for a superb evening in the museum gardens. Tickets are just £7.50 and they're available from the museum shop. Ring 01964 533443 Bring along a chair, a picnic or even a banquet!
