Eva Cassidy: The Story
Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
Elsa Jean McTaggart presents a tribute to her all-time favourite artist Eva Cassidy at East Kilbride Village Theatre on Monday 9th May!
About Eva Cassidy: The Story
A portrayal of the life of Eva Cassidy through video, voice and song. Elsa Jean McTaggart presents a tribute to her all-time favourite artist Eva Cassidy. With her voice and guitar plus piano accompaniment, she brings alive the essence of Eva as she relates the songs to the beautiful and yet tragic story of one of the world’s most iconic voices, which was not brought to light until years after her untimely death at 33.
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).
An icon of acoustic music. Wistful and emotional vocals, beautiful guitar accompaniment, Eva Cassidy had the power to move audiences through her interpretation of well-known songs. Elsa has devised this very special show to pay homage to this true interpreter of song. Featuring Wonderful World, Time After Time Somewhere Over The Rainbow and many more.
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.
