Edwina has the most beautiful voice and writes some well crafted haunting songs even though she is probably best known for her cover of Randy Newman’s Feels Like Home which featured in the film My Sister’s Keeper. She does a number of other covers too – Leonard Cohen and Richard Thompson – and has a way of making them her own. She is the most English of singers. Couple that with such a bubbly personality and you have a winner.
Alistair Artingstall writes and sings delicate songs accompanied by nice equally delicate guitar coupled with a sad persona and witty asides that tell another story. He is good at stories as well. He is a very good sound engineer who has worked with the likes of Rufus Wainwright.
The two of them together compliment each other nicely. At the Bell they alternated songs and accompanied each other. There was great mutual respect and the combination worked well.
With a bit of effort I think Edwina could be singing on a bigger stage than this but she seems content to stay at this level.
I enjoyed it greatly.
