An Evening with Eilidh Patterson
06 December 2012 - 06 December 2012
Thursday 6 December, 8pm
Following her hugely successful previous appearances in Ballymoney as part of Songwriters in the Round, Derry songstress Eilidh Patterson makes a welcome return for an intimate solo show.
Since setting out on her music career in 2007 with a 3-track demo, Eilidh has been on a remarkable journey taking her on countless trips to perform in the USA and UK. Nashville TN has become, in her own words, “a second home”. Indeed this is where she recorded her latest album This is Now featuring some of her long-time musical heroes including Ron Block (AKUS) and Tim O’Brien. Join Eilidh as she recalls some of her experiences on the journey thus far and performs songs from both studio albums. You may also hear cover songs which were “hugely influential in her development as a singer/songwriter” and some newly composed songs!
“Eilidh Patterson’s voice is velvet and air. The richness of her sound and her songs is something beautiful to behold….” and of This is Now album, “Absolutely brilliant. I love it!” Beth Nielson Chapman.
“Eilidh has an easy going charm and commanding stage presence that demands your attention. Her sweet voice never fails to amaze me.” Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
