When music works well for Eddi Reader, the Scottish singer who first came to fame with the 1980s folk-pop band Fairground Attraction, says it’s “as natural as breathing”. And, in general, there is an effortlessness to the Glaswegian’s performances, something Galway audiences will get to enjoy in the City’s Town Hall Theatre on Friday, February 9.

“I feel a kindredness with the Irish and their stories,” Eddi explains. “The Glasgow story, there was a massive Irish influence there. I didn’t think I could play in Ireland, but years ago someone suggested that ‘people would come and see you if you played in the smaller art centres. You mightn’t have been in the charts for a while, but people will still come out to see music’. I don’t need to have been on Strictly Come Dancing!
