The County Hotel

Selkirk, Scottish Borders TD7 4BZ
String Jam Club at the County Hotel in Selkirk presents EDWINA HAYES, a singer-songwriter with "the sweetest voice in England" according to the legendary Nanci Griffith, for her second visit to the club on Saturday 9th February 2019. 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. Edwina is also a supreme interpreter of other people's songs. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing 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 and her version of the Randy Newman song 'Feels Like Home' was featured in the Cameron Diaz film 'My Sister's Keeper' and has since had over eight million plays on You Tube.
As well as her own gigs, Edwina is often invited to guest on studio albums and support major artists on tour. In addition to touring extensively with Jools, Van and Nanci Griffith, Edwina has also toured with artists ranging from Loudon Wainwright and Roger McGuinn to KT Tunstall and Gretchen Peters. Dividing her time between the UK and America, Edwina's second home is Nashville where she is much loved as a songwriter and artist.
Signed to Warner Chappell Publishing, Edwina has an eclectic range of influences, a very busy touring schedule and three acclaimed albums under her belt. Her debut album 'Out On My Own' on Warner Brothers was released to critical acclaim. Produced by Clive Gregson and Nick Drake producer John Wood, the record featured Dr Hook's Dennis Locorriere as a guest vocalist and became a favourite on Michael Parkinson's BBC Radio Show.
Edwina's second album 'Pour Me A Drink' was much more stripped down and acoustic, garnering recognition from Nanci Griffith who loved it so much that she covered the title track. You can't get much better than that! Edwina followed in the same style with her third release 'Good Things Happen Over Coffee' and a third release is due this year. Ever working hard out on the road, Edwina has toured constantly, including Australia & China & with Fairport Convention, continuing to attract wonderful reviews and fans worldwide.
String Jam Club is looking forward to welcoming Edwina back for her second visit. This promises to be a very special evening of beautifully sung music by one of the circuit's most captivating live performers.
