Celebrating Cassidy’s music with a Scottish Lilt and due to high demand, more violin and Elsa’s original songs! After sell-out tours with ‘The Story’ Elsa is ready to launch the sequel show replacing storytelling with more of Eva’s greatest standards.
Described by audiences from around the world as intoxicatingly beautiful, captivating, soulful, and beyond excellent. With her crystal-clear vocals, stunning violin and guitar skills, and accompanied on Piano and Bass by her beloved Mr Lister… Elsa brings the music of one of the world’s most treasured voices back to life. A guaranteed must-see show… this Scottish songbird will not disappoint.
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).
Elsa Jean McTaggart – Eva Cassidy and Me – theSpaceUK Aug 9th 2021
The Multi-talented Elsa McTaggart has made a welcome return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe accompanied by her husband Gary Lister, with two new shows for 2021.
“Eva Cassidy and Me” is the sequel to Elsa’s popular and successful “The Eva Cassidy Story” and tells, in words and song, excerpts from the life stories of both Eva and Elsa.
It was a rather wet and dreich early evening in the Garden Theatre at Hill Square but, as always, Elsa’s warm personality shone through as she formed an almost instant connection with her audience from the moment that she stepped onto the stage to perform some of Eva’s best-loved songs such as “Fields of Gold” and “Wonderful World”, with a few surprises thrown into the mix as well. One of the songs performed was “Ain’t No Sunshine”, which was appropriate for the weather, but Elsa McTaggart definitely brought her own brand of sunshine with her beautiful voice and guitar and fiddle playing, with the audience enjoying every moment of her performance.
