Sunday 19th November sees the long awaited return of Edwina Hayes to Barnsley Folk Club where she is one of our most popular guests.
Edwina’s 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 is an artist at the very top of the English folk an acoustic music and she has opened numerous shows for star performers such as Jools Holland and Van Morrison and has performed her own gigs on stages everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall. The title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her ‘the sweetest voice in England’.
Edwina has toured with or supported Jools Holland, Van Morrison and Nanci Griffith, Loudon Wainwright, Roger McGuinn and KT Tunstall. Dividing her time between the UK and America, Edwina’s second home is Nashville where she is much loved as a songwriter and artist.
Edwina has an eclectic range of influences from Bob Dylan and Carole King to Van Morrison and Gillian Welch.
Support comes from The Mockingbirds Americana duo from Haworth and environs, and from the Last of the Independents, an acoustic Rory Gallagher tribute from Barnsleys very own Scott Doonican and Richard Kitson.
