20190927: Friday 27th September: Edwina Hayes
Edwina Hayes’ 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. Edwina’s debut album 'Out On My Own' (2005), produced by Clive Gregson and John Wood, featured Dr Hook's Dennis Locorriere as a guest vocalist and became a favourite on Michael Parkinson's BBC Radio Show. Nanci Griffith covered the title track of her second album ‘Pour Me A Drink’ (2010). Edwina's cover version of Randy Newman’s ‘Feels Like Home’ was played in full in the motion picture 'My Sister's Keeper' starring Cameron Diaz and Alec Baldwin. Her third release 'Good Things Happen Over Coffee' came out in (2012). As well as touring extensively with many high profile artists from Jools Holland, Van Morrison and Nanci Griffith, to Loudon Wainwright, Roger McGuinn, KT Tunstall and Gretchen Peters. She divides her time between the UK and America, and is a much-loved songwriter and artist in Nashville.
'The sweetest voice in England. A wonderful young woman, so gifted and full of song' – Nanci Griffith.
Singing is Kelly Pritchard’s passion, so it’s not surprising that she has an affinity with many styles of music. Americana/folk, Cajun and Country featured in the duo Kelly and Kev, with Kev Walford, and previously, fronting her band “Chasing Storms”, Kelly performed a selection of original songs and jazz standards. As “Vocally Vintage”, she sings material from the 40s and 50s.
Kelly recently decided to start promoting her own songwriting and solo identity, and Cambridge Folk Club is pleased to support her in her new venture.
