About Songbird: Ellyn Oliver sings Eva Cassidy

Citing Eva Cassidy as one of her biggest influences, join Ellyn as she shares Eva’s story and pays homage to one of the greatest songbirds.

“As a huge admirer of Eva I knew these songs would be in safe hands and I sensed there might be emotional moments and powerful renditions. The audience however, it seemed, were taken by surprise. Ellyn’s pitch perfect vocals combined with a ‘kick ass’ but sensitive band took us to every corner of our emotions and back again. Eva’s spirit and approach to her art were captured beautifully in Ellyn’s thoughtfully presented stories and anecdotes about her life and death. The whole night was wrapped up in Ellyn’s warm, unpretentious but thoroughly assured stage presence. The audience’s appreciation of quite simply stunning vocal performances, the superb delivery of a fantastic songbook and a precious life remembered culminated in a well deserved standing ovation.”
Yvonne Lyon, Singer-Songwriter, June 2018
