Eva Cassidy: The Story


Sold Out

Join us this June at The Crescent for a portrayal of the life of Eva Cassidy through video, voice and song. 

Eva Cassidy is an icon of acoustic music. Wistful and emotional vocals, beautiful guitar accompaniments, Eva Cassidy had the power to move audiences through her interpretation of well-known songs. 

Inspired by her favourite artist, award-winning musician Elsa Jean McTaggart presents a brand new tribute to her all-time favourite artist Eva Cassidy. With voice and guitar, she brings alive the essence of Eva as she relates the songs to the beautiful and yet tragic story of one of the world's iconic voices, which was not brought to light until two years after her untimely death at 33. 

Elsa's voice has been described as 'smooth as velvet... sultry' (Joe Simmons, Edinburgh Tonight) and 'One of these very few people with a distinctive enough voice to do the music and songs of Eva Cassidy justice' (Tom King, Southside Advertiser).

A hit with a wide audience at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 where the show was previewed selling out many times, Eva Cassidy: The Story will be a deeply personal, poignant tribute by Elsa to an inspirational voice and an incredibly talented musician who was discovered by the world tragically late.
