Andrew Batty - 23/10/2019 16:56
Dear Edwina. I can't get Good Things Happen Over Coffee CD out of my car. It loves it and your voice as much as I do. You really went down well at North Newbald, which is in East Yorkshire and not North, lol Love Andy x

Hi Edwina, loved both shows we got to see you play while on our trip to England! It was a pleasure getting to meet and talk with you after the show in Hitchin! Also wanted to let you know I'll be playing one of your songs on my show, Cal's Closet over here in Nova Scotia Canada, on Saturday evening November 28th on! It will be airing in England at 4PM! Thanks so much for the wonderful music you shared with us on stage! Yours Cal Lewis & Renelle Leger
John Kerr - 11/11/2015 19:15
Hi Edwina. You probably don't remember me but i came to see you at Crail town hall in Fife on 25th of June this year when you filed in as a late replacement for the singer who was advertised but fell sick. I bought your cd 'Buy me a drink' from you & had to run over to the cash machine to get ten pounds. I just wanted to say that radio2 dj Alex Lester (the dark lord!) mentioned you on his after midnight show last Sunday the 8th after mentioning his usual feature 'the musical map of Great Britain' which featured Muswell Hill in north London where one of his listeners mentioned to him that he had forgotten to mention Jefferson Airplane were from Muswell Hill & Alex said that he & his wife (the dark lady) knew that as they had gone to their gig last year (can't think when ) but had not gone to see them but had only gone to see you instead! Good work! All the best. John Kerr.
Chris Whitelaw - 20/09/2015 22:51
Just back from the gig at Howden Centre. You sang beautifully as always. Your slot was over far too quickly. I have all 3 of your albums. Glad to see your most recent 2 selling well tonight. More Scottish gigs please!
Jan - 14/09/2015 18:09
Hello Ed, Had the pleasure of hearing you and meeting you at Millom. Fantastic evening, are sooo not posh I still have your lighter!
Gordon Smith - 05/09/2015 00:25
Thanks for a great evening, introduced me to some great new(old) songs and some excellent material of your own. I have an eclectic musical taste and folk may now play a greater part thanks to yourself and the excellent Eddie Allen? We are visiting Carlisle from Toddington and thought we'd give your gig a go as a change from the pub. What an excellent decision - all three of us thoroughly enjoyed it and we purchased both of your CDs. Thanks once again and hope to see you again sometime.
Steve - 01/08/2015 16:57
Hi Edwina, just wanted to say how lucky I was to see your performance at this years Burton Agnes festival. You were the act I remembered most, so bought both your cd's - listening to them always seems to make me smile. Hoping to catch you again at Thirsk in November.
David & Sylvie - 11/06/2015 11:08
Hi Edwina Thank you so much for making our joint 125th Birthday Party on 30th May so special, and for making the long trip to London. We look forward to seeing you at Cottered in July. Lots of love David & Sylvie xxxxx

Hi Edwina We would love to see you in Louisiana. Hope you can make it to Baton Rouge/ New Orleans in the near future.

Thanks for the evening at Dartford FC - Harry (top hat + flowers ! ) says 'thank you' for the 'medication' - its working well & he thinks it must be a secret 'Northern' elixir !!
Joe Whittaker - 15/10/2014 14:49
Lovely songs and singing at Dartford last night but as a Prestonian you might like to consider playing a Fylde guitar. !!!!!! Safe travels.
Graham - 15/10/2014 09:38
A great night at Dartford Folk Club. Thank you so much, I look forward to hearing more of you.
Steve Peart - 15/08/2014 16:20

Terry - 03/03/2014 20:58
Hi Edwina, saw you last night in Pontardawe. You were superb, really enjoyed last night. As I told you your version of the immortal Sandy Denny song was one of the finest I have heard. Enjoy Ulverston and give my regards to Dave Woods one of the organisers, we both grew up in Southport. Cheers
Roger - 03/03/2014 15:45

Hi Edwina. Saw you tonight at The Stables supporting Fairport. A fantastic set and an introduction for me to your wonderful songs and singing. I enjoyed meeting you during the interval and can't wait to listen to the albums I purchased at the show. Come back soon. Gordon
Rick Pannell - 09/01/2014 20:28
A slightly different, very enjoyable flavour Edwina, last night at the Red Lion Birmingham where you were joined by Rosalie Deighton. Very intimate or as you said 'sensitive'. Thank you.
Allan - 21/10/2013 19:16
Looking forward to seeing you at Pocktoberfest, enjoyed watching you in Bishop Wilton Hall. Got both your albums and think you are great!

hi edwina, i'm sitting at home late on a saturday night, listening to your music and loving your voice. please come to the states. i'd be first in line!
David Tucker - 21/06/2013 16:59
Saw you for the first time last night at Toll Gavel Church, Beverley. What a wonderful night with 'The Good Intentions' and 'Jeni & Billy'. You are an outstanding song writer, a great entertainmer, a massive talent and your sadder songs only made me cry twice! And in spite of what you said you looked very slim to me. And I too think you should open for Bob Dylan. When he hears you he will retire if he has any sense. Thanks for a memorable evening (it must have been good because I never post messages like this) cos I'm old and grumpy.
Heather Reynolds - 20/05/2013 21:56
Hello beautiful, not only are you this on the outside, inside but you as well have it in your voice! You are so talented and I look forward to listening to many more albums from you!! I feel blessed to get the ability to become friends with someone who is so amazing and wonderful!! Here's to many more successful years making great music!!! xoxo
J McInnes - 17/01/2013 22:11
There are few things in this world as beautiful as your voice.
Eric Davies - 31/07/2012 09:37
"Listening to our signed copy of ""Good things happen over coffee"". Great set on Saturday the 28th at the private party. Thanks."
roger williams - 03/07/2012 16:14
Thank you for a magical day on Sunday Edwina. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did...... keep laughing.
Nikki - 17/06/2012 22:58
Edwina, Thank you so much for a magical evening at the Cottered Village Hall, Good cause, good company and fantastic vocals. As amazing as your voice is, I confess I loved your stories almost as much as your singing. Hope you come and do the gig for my friends Barge Party as would love to see you again. When I posted on facebook where I had been, my brother in Australia commented how much he loves your music too so maybe the folk music charts have a larger following than three after all!!!
David Cooper - 17/06/2012 22:05
Thank you for a wonderful gig at Cottered Village Hall on 15th June and for supporting the charity so generously. As well as having 'the voice of an angel' you are also such a lovely genuine girl. We can't wait to see you again. xx

Clare Oddy - 15/01/2012 18:54
Hi Eddy, Songstress is the right word! What a fab way to start the new year by coming to Nunnington last night. The frost may have made it cold outside but your lovely voice warmed the hearts of all there! Just scrolled back through this page and realised I've been coming to see you since May 05! Wow! It seems like yesterday! Love you! xx
Janet and Peter - 15/01/2012 14:40
We saw you in Ripon last year and fell in love with your music. Nunnington Hall last night - awesome in every way! A beautiful venue and a beautiful songstress.
Cathy Capogna - 09/01/2012 11:45
I am totally in love with your music! Have both albums on my I-pod and listen all the time! Decided to look up the meaning of Famous Blue Raincoat as it was mysterious, and found Leonard Cohen wrote it. Now it makes sense to me, but I like the way you changed it. Thank you for your beautiful voice and sharing it with the public!
keith and manda keywood - 07/12/2011 19:06
hi edwina just seen you mentioned on hursties daily dose and found your site god not doing too bad are you long way from working with me at the hook and parrot

Hi Roger, Yes, I am very proud of my fantastic daughter! (Mum)
Roger Waterfall - 24/06/2011 00:21
Edwina, Have just returned home after listening to you at the Grassington Festival gig. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, your lovely voice and acoustic guitar, nothing electrical at all, had forgotten how good that can sound. Your anecdotes between the songs were great. You mentioned Joan Baez, I arranged for her to play Skipton Festival, many years ago, she was fantastic but I enjoyed tonight just as much. PS to Mum (Edwina says you read this more than her) you must be very proud of your fantastic daughter.
Mo King - 26/05/2011 23:31
Really enjoyed hearing you sing at Otterton Mill this evening. :) you really do have a magical voice that makes shivers come down my spine when you sang feels like home to me. I spoke to you and was the girl called Mo that brought along the sleeve of your first album. Really hope to see you again soon and looking forward to your third album arriving
Adrian - 13/12/2010 21:04
The long awaited new CD came today - Brilliant!
Ian James - 09/12/2010 15:22
"Welcome back from Nashville !! - hope the Albert Hall Gig goes brilliantly - hope ""Good Things Happen Over Coffee"" sells by the truck load !!! - Ian x."
John Ferrell - 12/10/2010 21:25
"Edwina, thank you soooo much for your song ""feels like home"" your voice and the way you sing the lyrics cuts straight to the soul...... and brings a man to his knees. Yes I have been living in a cave, it took a family loss, and a song to bring me to the surface of life, because YOU made a choice to sing THIS SONG. Love from OHIO"
Graeme - 11/10/2010 22:07
Hi Edwina's Mum - another post in the guestbook ;) Hi Edwina - We saw you at The Cellars in Eastney (Portsmouth) last night, and really enjoyed ourselves. Your music is beautiful, and you did Kate Rusby proud:)) Sorry the audience (and Eden) felt the need to chat - I am glad you said something. Hope you come back soon, and don't wait another year.
Steve Turner - 04/10/2010 00:25
Lovely evening at the Musician in Leicester, I think you enjoyed yourself too. Thanks for lovely songs and funny stories. Come back soon.
Ian James - 20/09/2010 15:00
"Hi Edwina - thanks for playing for us on Friday at The Stables in Milton Keynes - you sounded fantastic (we liked that slight ""hoarseness"" - quite appropriate in an ex Stables really !!) - looking forward to catching up again soon - love Ian, Martin, Sharon, and Barry."
Mike E - 15/09/2010 21:25
After seeing you at Lemington Spa as support to Nanci Griffith I have been hoping that you would be playing near me, so really looking forward to Friday at the Stables. I can't keep your songs off my ipod! and Feels Like Home gets me every time!
Clare Oddy - 03/08/2010 20:14
The only reason I'm looking forward to the end of the summer holidays and a new term starting is because then I'll be coming to see you in Ripon! I do hope the new album will be out by then!!
marie - 21/06/2010 15:24
thought you were great at Beverley Folk Fest! Hope to see you again when you are in Scarborough. X
Tony Lightfoot - 19/06/2010 12:09
Hi Edwina, Great gig at Caistor last night. A brilliant follow-up to the gig at The Ropewalk last year. Looking forward to the new album
Anthony Selby - 11/06/2010 08:13
Edwina, hello. Saw the gig in Basingstoke last night and was very impressed by your effortless vocals and most of the material. I mentioned to you after the show the'Not Strictly Bluegrass Festival' held every year in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco where, I believe your music would be readily appreciated on one of the many stages. Get your agent on it ! See you next time. Anthony - 2010
Andy M - 04/06/2010 16:24
just heard your song Feels lIke Home on the My Sisters Keeper OST and just had to let you know that it's one of the most beautiful, poignant and touching songs I've ever listened to. You are extraordinary talent.
Dave and Rachel - 12/04/2010 10:07
Edwina ever since we saw you support Nanci Griffith have been waiting to hear you live...and last night at The Robin was an amazing set. Love the betwween songs banter you are a treasure. May all good things come your way...Dave Rachel and our daughter Lyndsey.

Saw you in Edinburgh with Nanci, I don't think I've ever enjoyed a singer so much, thanks.
KATH - 10/02/2010 10:05
I watched My Sister's Keeper on a fllight to Thailand in November and loved Feels Like Home. Couldn't believe it when went to see Nanci Griffith (of whom I have been a fan for year) and you were the support. You were brillaint. Went home and ordered your CD and it cam yesterday and its in my car. Fabulous!!!
Dave Pichford - 09/02/2010 10:00
Great performance at the Lowry ( dont usually watch the support act but hey this was sublime) will try to get to your gig at the Robin in April. Thanks
Chris - 08/02/2010 18:31
Saw the show in Edinburgh last night - you were outstanding. Second time that I've heard you live now and can't wait for the next. Looking forward to buying the new album.
Keith Breach - 05/02/2010 21:13
Saw you at Bexill last night and bought your CD. Fantasic performance on both counts. So much better than your first. You only need your guitar and voice for a perfect sound and no other backing necessary. Thank You
Ra Hamilton - 05/02/2010 13:53
A new fan from Bexhill - took my true love to see Nanci cos she's his favourite and got rewarded by finding a new favourite of my own. Your album sold out at the gig so I have ordered it online. We'll see you in Nashville sometime .. thanks for a lovely time ..
Steve Turner - 05/02/2010 00:07
Hi Edwina, I saw you at leamington at the start of Nanci's tour and I really loved your voice and songs. I bought a CD from you at the interval and it has been on in my car all week, absolutely love it. Thanks so much, looking forward to when you play in Leicester
Michelle & Kyle - 01/02/2010 16:58
Hi Edwina!! Not long back from our travels and wanted to say such a huge THANK YOU once again for singing so beautifully at our wedding in Ireland on 28 Aug '08!! I'll email you a photo of the 3 of us. I was also watching 'My Sisters Keeper' last night and recognised your voice instantly! What a beautifully haunting and emotional song. Needless to say I cried buckets! Big congrats on being on the soundrack to such a hit movie! Take care and keep in touch. Love Michelle & Kyle xxx
Clare Oddy - 25/01/2010 20:55
So wonderful to see you again last night in Ripon! When you sang Feels Like Home it hit me that those words capture exactly how I felt the first time I heard your music. You are fabulous! And you don't need to slim to the new guitar - you looked perfect! xx
Ralf & Sandra - 24/01/2010 20:34
"Hi Edwina, we love your music, esp. ""Feels like Home"" - it means so much to us. Maybe we can make it to Britain, but even better we would like to see & hear you live here in Germany someday !!! All the best & keep on !!!"

Just got to say I enjoyed every minute of it and you've converted the metal head that I am.I've been listening to your cd all week and I love it! Please come back to us soon xxx
John Moroz - 01/12/2009 21:34
I saw you in June supporting Roger McGuinn and really loved your set. So much so that I bought 'Pour me a drink'.

I admit I hadn't heard of you before the party invitation came, but when it did, to gen up on you, I got your albums ""Pour Me a Drink"" and ""Out on My Own"" and love them, play them all the time in my shop and having seen you live heightens the pleasure! Congratulations on your success, and I hope you continue to get the acclaim you deserve! Very best wishes, Patsy Earnshaw"
Nettie - 10/07/2009 23:39
I have just returned from watching my sisters keeper, came home and googled you straight away.. your version of it feels like home hit a cord with me , made me cry and made me realise so much about my life... it truly touched me looking forward to hopefully seeing you live.
dani - 01/07/2009 02:52

Last night's concert was great, it took me 2 hours to find the place, but as soon as I heard your voice again it was worth it. Listened to the new album on my way home - it's fab.
Jim Such - 06/03/2008 15:22
Hi Edwina, Your new album is just sublime. Beautiful, simply beautiful - what more can I say. I can't wait to see you perform live again.

Hi Edwina, thank you for another wonderful night at Caistor. We (Helian Keys) had a lovely time doing support for you and your sets were wonderful as always. I keep thinking I will start getting less enthusiastic the more I hear your songs, but I don't. I still love your music. Can't wait til Feb 27th at the Lair, in Hull. You are lovely lady and brilliant performer, thank you, Helen xxx

Steve Cox - 09/02/2008 17:33
Really enjoyed your set at Canterbury last night. Gaynor and I came across you supporting Nanci a few years back. Have seen you several times now in the Kent area. Didn't realise you were supporting Gretchen. Really like your songs,they seem simple but there are lots of subtle bits! An the chat between the songs, really funny, you could chat for England. Best wishes, hope the tour ends well. Will look for you in the future. Steve and Gaynor. P.S. How did the Hummingbirds pregnancy go?
Alan - 08/02/2008 12:59

ady - Dec 05

Edwina I saw you play support for Ricky Ross in Milton Keynes earlier in the year and hope you can playing this neck of the wood again one day. I know you went down a storm at The Stables, especially judging by the queue to meet you at the interval, you’d sold out of your CD’s by the time I reached you! But soon remedied. And for those interested Edwina appears in the December 2005 issue of Maverick magazine (3 pages) details at
David Humphries - Nov 05

Saw you at the Jools Holland gig in Cheltenham. Really enjoyed your performance - and excellent CD too! Hope you'll come back this way.
Rod Matthews - Nov 05

Hi Edwina!  Saw you supporting Jools holland at the guild hall in portsmouth and you were brilliant!  I was the first person whose CD you signed at the interval! :)  Hope you're good.  Take care.
Duncan B. - Nov 05

Sad to see you're not coming to Glasgow on 2nd December supporting Jools Holland - saw you earlier this year supporting Ricky Ross and still enjoying the CD.
Ally - Nov 05

Beautiful set supporting Jools Holland in Leicester last night, can someone confirm the name of your guitarist friend accompanying you and doing backing?  I didn't catch his name but his playing was awesome!  Off to download your album from iTunes now and recommend you to my friends. You should get a MySpace music page too.
Jan B - Nov 05

sam nicholson - Nov 05

Edwina,        I have to echo the sentiments of Carissa Broadwater and say that we miss you in Nashville and look forward to seeing you in "these here parts" once more someday.  Especially now that the Christmas (music) season is not far away!        P.S.:  Read about my 2nd South Africa experience:   So many of those people talked just like you!  Amazing!  HA!
Mark Kelly Hall - Oct 05

My wife and I saw you last night in Belfast - I had the shirt you admired ! . Both of us were knocked out by your sincerity , talent and performance skills . What a voice ! Beautiful songwriting ! Nashville has been good for you - take more of that medicine . Look forward to hearing you soon and reading about your very big  success which WILL definitely happen
Alan C Beck - Oct 05

Hi all. For all those of you who i hope will be interested, there is an exclusive interview with Edwina about her feelings towards her debut album release and alot more besides on my website at if you would care to take a look, and even leave a message or two on the forum there if you have anything you would like to say about the site in general. Thankyou for your time and i hope you all enjoy reading the interview. (Steve Rudd - Webmaster)

I dare someone to try to be as good as Edwina Hayes it will never happen, I know because I have tried!! Can't stop telling everybody how awesome she is!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Edwina, saw you in Glasgow with Jools Holland back in summer time.  Like many here, bought your CD and was lucky enough to have met you and have you sign it. Love your voice and really hope things are going from strength to strength for you. Come back to Scotland again soon please  x
Barbara - Oct 05

The album which I have had for a couple of months is so good(thanks Renee for the recomendation). For a poor old 60+ yearold good music fan who can't travel too far, howabout a gig at the Mick Jagger Centre Dartford......Cara Dillon has done two really good shows there and I'm sure you would go down really well
julian - Oct 05

Was blown away last night when you played the opening set for Jools Holland at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen, what a beautiful voice.  It was a pleasure to meet you after your set and many thanks for signing the cd. Hope you manage to play in Aberdeen again in the future.
Darren Beaumont - Oct 05

Hi, would you like to play on our acoustic night at our venue Viva Viva in Crouch End? Give me a call if you can.    Cheers    Terry    020 8341 0999
Terry - Oct 05

We went to see Nanci Griffith and heard Edwina & her acoustic set. Lovely. Glad to see that many more people enjoy a pared down sound. No huge backing to distract from heartfelt vocals. Well done Edwina. See you at The Store!
Paula Allum - Oct 05

Hey Edwina!  Saw you for the first time supporting Nanci Griffith at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh earlier this year and thought you were fab!  Bought your album the following week and think's it's brill.  A few of your songs have got me through some stressful times! and The Road can make me a wee bit teary!  Anyway, keep doing what you're doing, you're amazingly gifted and a pleasure to listen to.  Let us know when you're next playing in bonnie Scotland! :-)
Gemma - Sep 05

A review of Edwina's fab album has recently appeared on the high profile website at if anybody cares to check it out... if they can find it that is, amongst the hundreds and hundreds of other articles on the site. Here's looking forward to Edwina's eagerly anticipated next release!...

Love Eddy xxx
Eddy - Sep 05

Hi, does anyone know if Edwina plans to come back and play in Scotland any time soon??
Jules - Sep 05

Wow! What a voice; truly beautifil and moving. And a natural gift for saying everything in a song. My first experience of Edwina was a Cropredy - it sure won't be my last. :)
St. Hubbins - Aug 05

Edwina, I saw you open for Daniel Bedingfield at the Summer Pops in Liverpool and thought you were amazing. Great songs of uplifting melancholy and a voice to match. You really won the audience over - Liverpool crowds don't react that way to be polite. Please come back to the Pool soon, and good luck with the rest of the tour.  
Tony Morris - Aug 05

Hi Edwina just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your performance at Cropredy. You have a truly haunting & unforgettable beautiful voice. I bought your CD and hope you can fix a gig date in Oxfordshire soon please!
Kate & Bill - Aug 05

Steve n' Stuart - Aug 05

Just heard your fantastic voice for the first time on Michael Parkinson and having 'Googlised' you, have played your samples over and over waiting until Monday when I shall buy your CD.  Especially adore the Jazzy twist to 'Eyes of a Stranger'.  I predict a star in the making ....
Des - Jul 05

Hi Edwina, i saw you July 16 supporting Van Morrison, you were great and a star in the making, great voice, bought the cd and havnt stopped playing it since see u soon, keep it up x
Melanie Shea - Jul 05

Hi Edwina, I saw you for the first time at the Liverpool Pops, supporting Daniel Bedingfield, a few nights ago. It always bugs me when a crowd talk through a support act so it was a welcome change when your amazing talent shut them up for a bit! Thank you very much for signing my CD (and my Aunt's CD - yes, we bought two!) and for checking whether my name was a G or a J - also makes a nice change! It was lovely to get a chance to meet you. Your album is fantastic - haven't stopped listening to it from the minute we got back in the car after the concert. I particularly like "I Can't Believe" for it's haunting sound and "Closer To Home" which is a bit motivational for me as I'm trying to make some changes in my life and chase a few dreams of my own at the moment! I'm sure you're not going to need it but I wish you the very best of luck in the future and hope to see you perform live again soon :-) x
Gillian - Jul 05

hey edwina, it was inspiring to see you in Liverpool last night. As soon as you started singing, people hushed their conversations and turned their attention to you on the stage - it was a great performance. well done you - see you soon sweetie love sarah, mandy and myles xxx
sarah moriarty - Jul 05

Hey to all...good going. Am excited for's fun to read the daily log. God bless, Cary

Jennifer Kerr - Jul 05

Thank you so much edwina for coming down to play the faersham the other week. it was a loverly evening, and made a uge impression on those who came. i'll be in touch!        Thanks again    xx
Joe - Jul 05

Great gig at The Faversham tonight - just a shame about the "noisy buggers" who were there for a chat rather than to hear you (their loss!!). Nice to hear some of your other songs that didn't make the album, albeit at the expense of some great songs that did make it. Maybe a CD-R of some of these songs could be made available through the web-site.
Keith - Jul 05

Hi Edwina,  Saw your 'vid' on songs of praise as forewarned by you at the Etton gig.  In the words of the commercial 'By gum you looked gorgeous petal !'. We are coming to see on Monday 4th at the Faversham and I am busy telling lots of other people to come too!  See you then xx
Clare & Craig - Jun 05

hi honey - glad to see you are still doing so well and have so many gigs lined up! fab to see you again soon - we will be at one of your next gigs ...just keep your eyes open!

emma dixon(williams) - Jun 05

Saw you on Songs of praise. Not a patch on your CD work, totally unexpected but still very enjoyable!I Have seen you live on a few occasions and think you are at your very best then, you are excellent! Hope to hear more from you soon.

Edwina - fantastic evening supporting Ricky Ross at the Rosehill.  You have a wonderful voice and a unique talent.  The CD is a joy to listen to.  Looking forward to hearing great things about you. The CD has already been around 5 people and that has given you 5 new fans. This is the first time I have ever left any message like this before and I have been buying CDs for 20 years. Thanks for introducing me to a beautiful collection of songs.

Louise - May 05

Hi Edwina, My wife and I saw you at Eastbourne with Ricky Ross Last night (22/05/05) Your set was excellent. It was Good to hear an Artist with something real to sing about. You have songs that can touch people, a very rare talent.    Look forward to the opportunity to hear you again.        Paul & Julie Briffitt
big bopper briff - May 05

rebecca fellows - May 05

Edwina,    Truly amazing. I haven't much more to say! Your voice is just beautiful. I was lucky enough to see you supporting Ricky Ross at Burnley Mechanics on Sunday 15th May and was absolutely stunned by your music. I really do hope that all your dreams come true and you will continue to write such wonderful songs.    P.S. All my family will be watching you on Songs Of Praise on Father's Day. Everyone one of them is amazed at your album!  (I am 11 years old!)
Evie Ingle - May 05

Hello Edwina, saw you for the first time on Monday 16 June at Leeds City Varieties. I will be honest with obviously I went to see the beautiful RIcky Ross (which you agreed with me at the interval), and always open minded and yet a little apprehensive of support groups. When you first came out and spoke in your tiny soft voice I became more apprehensive and then you started to sing and knocked my bloody socks off, your voice is truely amazing, so mellow, so smooth, your lyrics so meaningful to individuals feelings and your guitar playing amazing. I was gob smacked and I will be looking out for any more tours you do. Thank you Hx
Helen Louise Wood - May 05

Hi Edwina,    I'm so glad to see you doing so well with your music, I first heard you sing when you were in Chester and I thought you had a great voice then, I now see you going from strength to strength. I wish you all the best and I hope to come to one of your gigs when you come to london. Cheers, Dave
David Tughan - May 05

Seen you at the Rosehill Whitehaven, Cumbria)on Saturday 14th May.  Think that you have the most amazing voice and beautiful meaningful songs.  Was move to tears when I heard your voice.  Wonderful and refreshing to hear someone so talented.  Hope to see you again soon.  Good Luck x x
Robyn & Richard - May 05

Hello again Edwina. I really enjoyed catching another of your wonderful performances at the Rosehill theatre in Whitehaven last night. It was really nice to finally get the chance to say hello and get my CD signed. I hope its not too long before your next visit to Cumbria. All the very best.
Stephen McGinn,  Carlisle - May 05

Edwina, I saw you in support for Jooles Holland at the Warwick Arts Centre on the 8th May......You were fantastic!!! I haven't stopped listening to your CD since.... I know all the songs off by heart already!  You even signed it for me but I couldn't say much for fear I might burst into tears..... you took my breath away! After ten years of not playing, you have inspired me to finally pick up my guitar agian and I can't thank you enough for that.        I wish you all the luck in the world for the future..... you deserve all the success that comes your way!  
Natalie - May 05

Hi, Just wanted to say that I saw you open for Ricky Ross last night at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, and you were fantastic.  It was a hard act for Ricky to follow.  Best of luck and I am sure we will be hearing a lot more of you!!!
Kelly McLeod - May 05

Edwina, your gig at etten was the loveliest night out I've had in a very long time. Your set was beautiful and there just seemed to be such a warm atmosphere in the place, that I'm sure the whole audience felt. Thank you once again,    keep in touch.
Claire Smith - May 05

Hi Edwina, thought I would echo Helen's comments about the gig in Etton on Tuesday. It was, without a doubt, truly wonderful. You do indeed have an amazing stage presence, which, when I am listening to my cd I can remember more clearly now! The sets you played were briilliant (not just because you dedicated a song to us - you made our year!). Can't wait to see you playing another full gig very soon!!
Clare and Craig - May 05

hiy eddy, great night seein you at etton on tuesday night. you have a beautiful voice, and ure songs are ace :D    good luck with everything!!    love steph xxxxxxxx
steph - May 05

Wonderful gig, Edwina. I was looking forward to it so much that I thought it may not live up to my expectations but it was fantastic. Loved hearing your songs and it was great to hear the covers too. Never tire of listening to your lovely voice and you have stage presence I can only dream of ever acquiring.Wish we were coming again tonight! (And no folk, I am not related, sorry to gush but she really is fantastic..!)
Helen Bennett - May 05

Can't wait to hear you at Etton tonight, Edwina. Looking forward to hearing a full gig at last. Know you will be great as always and hope you bring a few cds for us to buy! Helen
Helen Bennett - May 05

Hi Edwina, I saw you at the Lowry tonight supporting Loudon Wainwright and was fortunate enough to have you sign my CD. You gave a beautiful set and I wish you every success for the future. Hope to see you again soon.
Bill - May 05

Hi Edwina.  We saw you at York when you were accompanying Nanci Griffiths.  It was a pleasure to hear you and to meet you.  Now we just need to find out when you are on in London again!
John & Elizabeth - May 05

Saw you opening for Loudon Wainwright III last night. An excellent performance, from a beautiful and charming young woman. Thank you for signing my CD and being so impossibly nice.
Ags Connolly - Apr 05

Hi Edwina.  Saw you opening for Nanci at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh on Sunday night and you were just superb!  What a beautiful voice and a lovely person you are.  Your songs were beautiful and sung with such love it sent shivers down my spine.  We bought your cd which you kindly signed for us and can't stop playing it. Now have 5 friends going out to buy it!  I hope it is the first of many cds as we just love the music.  Love Nanci Griffith and discovering your music was such an added bonus to a fantastic evening.  We wish you all the very best and look forward very much to hearing more from you.  With love and admiration.  Kay & Jim xx
Kay & Jim - Apr 05

Hi Edwina,    Met you in Nashville and I'm really chuffed to see how well you're doing and I can't wait to hear the new album. Hope to catch you in concert sometime soon, maybe at the Cornish gig. Keep on rockin'... All the best Jez
Jez Luton - Apr 05

Saw you last night at the Usher Hall concert with Nanci and thought you were outstanding. Such beautiful songs sung with love. I agree with the other guest that while you album is very good and should do well it struggles to live up to your live performance.
Jim Smith - Apr 05

We so enjoyed your performance at the Usher Hall last night - & also the brief chat when you signed the cd we bought (I introduced myself by saying I had been born in Huggate, as if that would mean much, even to someone from Driffield!!). But thanks for sharing such beautiful songs with us, & sincere best wishes on your future career.
David Williamson - Apr 05

Just seen your fantastic set at the UsherHall supporting nanci. Jings you're good! Bought your cd and listened to it on the way home. Best of luck for the future.    PS did anyone else thing the crowd at the usher hall gig were a tad 'boring', i was clapping along to my fave song by nanci, only to get evil stares from the people sitting beside me. Ho Hum!
Jules - Apr 05

We saw your live set at the Usher Hall Edinburgh on Sun 24th April - you signed my daughter's copy of your CD in the foyer. Thank you for the show, it was outstanding. I have to agree with some other posters on the message board, that the live performance is so good that the album struggles to live up to this. The solo acoustic set had a real haunting beauty that the CD just doesn't match - I'll still play it often though, and hope that you'll be back in Scotland soon.        Wishing you continued success.
Tom Cook - Apr 05

Hi , just thought I would say how much we enjoyed you on Friday night in Birmingham , definitely going to get the CD!  many thanks

An utterly moving and beautiful performance in Birmingham last night.  Thank you for sharing your soul, with songs written and sung from the heart.  Shine, shine and go far!  From another soulful woman with so much to say.  Kx

We saw you open tonight at Birmingham for Nanci, Amazing!  You are belssed with a beautiful voice and an amazing songwriting talent.  We bought your album and are looking forward to seeing you on songs of praise.  You are going a long way!!!!!  Thanks for sharing your voice with us!
Rebecca Fellows - Apr 05

Excellent show in Cambridge last night. I didn't even know who you were until the interval(arrived 15 minutes late). I've been listening to your signed CD all day, as well as in the car on my way home. I enjoyed your performance even more than Nanci's! All the very best for the future - I am sure someone else will be supporting you soon!
Sue - Apr 05

Suzy - Apr 05

Saw you last night in Croydon - thoroughly enjoyed your performance - couldn't get near you to buy the CD at the interval because of the crowd!  Will buy this week and look forward to seeing you live again.
Mark Ayers - Apr 05

Hi. Saw you last night in Nottingham, what a great voice and brilliant songs, wishing you all success. Bought the CD on the night and listened to it on the way home, just perfect, many thanks.
martin & Helen - Apr 05

I saw you last night in Nottingham, opening for Nancy and you blew me away. I thought you are a fantastic person, with a huge talent and an inspiration to young musicians. Can't wait till you are back in Nottingham, no doubt being the main act of the night!!
Reem - Apr 05

I saw you at newcastle last saturday. For me you stole the show. Im only 19 so you are appealing to young and old alike. Please come to Newcastle again soon. As a solo act you were simply astonishing
rob - Apr 05

We realy enjoyed your show in Newcastle. It was lovely to meet you and look forward to seeing you again.
Richard and Gill Marsden - Apr 05

Hi Edwina, I've just seen you open for Nanci at York and Newcastle, and loved your charming performances. You've got a beautiful voice and write some smashing songs - "Won me over" is my favourite. I can't believe some people don't watch the opening act when they are as good as you!  .PS. you seemed a little reserved on joining Nanci and the BMO for the encore - don't be! you deserve to be up there with such great musicians! Go for it!!! All the best...
Stephen McGinn - Apr 05

Watch you open for Nanci Griffith at Newcastle 16 april - what a wonderful voice,cd great - you really deserve to make it big time! best wishes for the future and I hope to see you play live again.  Shaun
Shaun Gallagher - Apr 05

Hi Edwina, saw you in Bristol supporting one of my absolute favourites Nanci Griffith. Brought my wife Sarah along and she loved your music as well! YOur voice reminds me a bit of Beth Nielsen Chapman, i.e. very beautiful indeed. Hope to see more of you in the future and all the best in life!
Nick Warren - Apr 05

Hi Edwina, saw you at york with Nanci, just one word to say on your performance, WOW. Would have loved to have talked to you at the interval, but could'nt get bloody near you, (Had to go for a pee anyway) I'll keep an eye on your future gigs and i'm off to buy your cd.
Ron Tmms - Apr 05

Hi Edwina, Great set in York last night & really enjoyed chatting to you in the interval. Looking forward to seeing you with Ricky Ross in Leeds.

Saw you last night (April 13th) opening Nanci Griffith concert. Really enjoyed your performance. Beautiful voice and moving songs, quality support act for the very talented Nanci. Wish you every success for the future. I'm sure we will hear lots more of you!    
Suzanne Bray - Apr 05

I thought that you were amazing when I saw you before the Nanci Griffiths concert and yu were very inspiring for me thank you for signing my copy of your album I am going to tell all my firends to by it for themselves so they can see how great you are        Chrlotte xxx
Charlotte - Apr 05

hey nice album. found a promo copy in oxfam for £3.00! the vocals seem to have been mixed quite 'safely' down in the mix losing the earthy quality of your live sound but apart from that it's a great first album.    ps. thanks for the mention in the credits.x
MB - Apr 05

Edwina    Best wishes for your tour with Nanci Griffiths    Love, Mum xxx

Edwina - thanks for performing a great set at the Tsunami Disaster Fund-raising concert in Cherry Burton on Friday, -and donating a copy of your new album to the raffle! The event raised £1200 for the appeal and we couldn't have done it without you and the other musicians - thanks again!        Martin (on behalf of Cherry Burton Arts)    
Martin (Cherry Burton Arts) - Jan 05

Edwina,    Your music is the greatest!  If you need another guitar player, I will give it my best shot!  Take care and keep it up,    Jake
Jake Knopfler - Dec 04

Dear Edwina,    I did see you opening voor JHRBO at the RAH    and I must say I was stunned. What a warm    performance. It was even better to meet up with you in person later that night (27-28/11/04. You're such a nice person and i'm    sure you're gonna make it ALL THE WAY !    Take care & love        Paul N. Dohmen    From The Netherlands (that's HOLLAND)
Paul N. Dohmen - Dec 04

Hi again Edwina. All day long I was so looking forward to getting home and putting on your new cd. It was certainly worth the wait as this is the most remarkable collection of songs I’ve heard in a very long time.  I cannot fault any of them. I loved the solo acoustic sets but these recordings with the band are also superb. I’ve read some of the earlier comments of a more critical nature but cannot agree with them. All the performances on these songs are at the highest level of musicianship. This is truly wonderful material. I am so glad Jools Holland had you opening for him in Glasgow otherwise we would not have realised what we have been missing. After listening all the way through we put on some Sandy Denny for comparison. My earlier comments are, I think, totally justified. Clearly the voices are not identical but there is a striking and very pleasing similarity. Hope you don’t mind me adding your comment about the production link with John Wood having produced records with Sandy Denny, Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson. Thanks so much for the pleasure these songs will give us for years to come. If you need a very young guitarist you know where we are! :-)
Glyn Phillips - Dec 04

Hi. Loved your gigs, opening for Jools H in Glasgow last Fri and Sat. I missed half of the Friday performance. Sorry!! But made sure we were in good time for Saturday's. My 9 year old son and I came to meet you on Sat (Preston and chipshop chat) so thanks for signing the cd which I haven't had chance to listen to yet. Tut tut.I am confident that we are gonna love it.    Your performance was excellent in all respects, lovely guitar work, great lyrics and what a voice! And so nice for a performer to include the audience as you do with great rapport.    The missus and I both felt you sounded as beautifully sweet as the late, great, Sandy Denny. I cannot think of a greater compliment.    My son is already a budding rock guitarist with a few gigs under his belt but he was so shy about saying hello - so Hello! from Tommy.    Good luck with the cd and the single. You deserve it.    :-)
Glyn Phillips - Dec 04

Hey Edwina, You probably won't read this, but if you do, then you know, email me or something!!! I came to Jools Holland at the Royal Albert Hall on November 27th and you were amazing!  I got down to the foyer and there were no copies of your album left!! I was around a metre away from you-when we were told to take our seats again!!! So more albums came in at the end and my Dad got one for me!!! You are such a huge inspiration to me!! You've made me realise that I can make it if i really try!! Thank you so much for being so amazing!!!!  I'm listening to your album now and it is absolutely outstanding!! Being only 14, I'm so glad that I've found such a good inspiration now!!!!!    Love Sam x x x x x
Sam Treasure - Dec 04

Every now and again someone comes along and gives you that feeling you know the one i mean the hairs on the back off your neck prick-up and your ears are full of angelic voice and guitar.Thank you Edwina for a fantastic set at newcastle last night you are a star    
dave mcmillan - Dec 04

Hi Edwina - we caught your set last night at Newcastle City Hall.  Very pretty songs!  My wife in particular loves female acoustic singers.  Thanks for signing the CD - haven't played it yet, but it'll get a few spins tonight!  Good luck with all things!  Hope to see you back in Newcastle very soon. xxx
Doug and Beccy Hayes - Dec 04

The Live at VAC cd arrived in the post this morning. Cant stop playing it. Much much better to listen to than the new album. The combination of guitar and violin make the tracks so mellow.          Steve, I am a accoustic junkie, and prefer the live stuff. Its the artists work and not a mixing desk jocky's. Commercial worked tracks are seller's and make money, but Get the Live at VAC, put your feet up and prepare to be whisked away.....        Nice to see an artist taking the time to look in on their website, Hi Edwina, love you loads..
Richard - Dec 04

It was a real unexpected treat to see you opening for Jools on Sunday.  I personally thought you upstaged him.  Bought the CD and I disagree with other submissions.  I feel the band complements your songwriting and makes it more commercially accessable. I personally prefer the acoustic performance and am keen to listen to your live at the VAC CD and hope to catch you live in a more intimate venue next year.  Steve Dec 04
Steve - Dec 04

Thankyou Rob & Richard for your comments, your feedback on my new CD is really appreciated, especially as it is my first studio record!  Im sorry that you are disappointed with the CD after having enjoyed the live set I played.  The songs on the CD were performed and recorded with a band whereas I usually perform gigs with only my guitar to back me up.  However, even though it was a studio album, all the core musicians played and sang live altogether, and there were very few overdubs or effects used.  As for me I believe that it's dreadfully difficult to capture the spontanaiety and wonderfulness of a live gig sound on a studio recording, but I can assure you that when recording my record I sang all of my songs exactly the same way that Ive always sung them at my gigs, at home, in the shower etc... so I have no explaination for the difference in accent that's been mentioned! It's quite bizarre and not something I have heard before, but as I say I do appreciate your comments and am happy that you enjoyed the concert. Playing live gigs is one of my most favourite things in the world to do and these first few gigs in large venues supporting Jools have been a dream come true! Best Wishes and Many Thanks Edwina xx
Eddy - Dec 04

I have to admit to Richards observations, I also saw Edwina at the NIA and I was blown away by her voice and guitar accoustic set. My wife bought the cd for me and I was so disapointed when I played it. The set Edwina played was just so english it was divine, but the cd was almost us country in style. Are we listening to a Suzzane Vega or a Dolly Parton. Sorry Edwina, if you want to crack the UK then ditch the country slant and the deep south accent when singing. You set at Brum was just PERFECT. No accent and I could have listened to you all night. Deeply unhappy with the cd, but Won me over, and Want you to stay are just the best tracks on the album. I was hoping for a femal Damien Rice, but its not you, sorry.
Rob - Dec 04

Dear Edwina!    I`m from Tenerife.    I received your CD as an present .    That´s how I became to listen to your absolutly wonderful voice and such great songs!    I wish you from the bottom of my heart the best for your way and I hope to have soon the poss. to see you live!    You`ll become a SuperStar!    Take care and carpe diem!    Hugs    Lidija
Lidija Deris - Dec 04

Hi Edwina. I saw you last night at the NIA opening for Jools and I thought you were great!  Beautiful songs and a gorgeous voice.  I shall be buying the CD!
Kelly - Dec 04

Saw Edwina at NIA Briminghan tonight, 5.12.04 and thought I could have listened to her all night instead of Jools...        Bought the album and I much prefered the live solo accoustic set, rather than the cd. Need to get a copy of the live cd.
Richard - Dec 04

I saw you sing on the 4th Dec and thought you were amazing.  I managed to get a copy of your cd which you very kindly signed for me.  Im also going to try and find those earrings that you were telling me about!! Keep up the good work. :-)
Emma - Dec 04

Was at the Apollo Manchester last night (Dec 4th) for our annual boogie with Jools. Completely bowled oyer by Edwina's set - never enjoyed a support act as much - couldn't get near to buy the cd but looking forward to it coming in the shops - good luck for the future.
Ian Hodgkinson - Dec 04

We really enjoyed listening and watching you at Harrogate with Jools, hope to see you with Jools next year, maybe before! Good luck with everything, Hannah x

We travelled 1+hour from 't'other side of the bridge',to see you act as support at Cherry Burton for 5 songs. It was worth every minute of the journey... Fantastic voice,great songs and lovely lady. Can't wait to hear you again and buy your cd when it comes out. Jules Holland knows talent when he sees it.
Helen Bennett - Oct 04

I had the privilege of seeing you perform at the Rhythm and Roots Reunion in Bristol, TN.  I was blown away by your voice.  Hope to see in the US soon.

This girl is going to the top. The spirit and warm sentiment of her songs shines through in her off stage natural persona. Just saw at Cottingham Live.. and "gave" me a free copy of CD .. I will give you the Tenner nxt time. xxMike

Hi Edwina, You met my brother Stacy recently at a festival in the states. He is an awesome guy, so please be careful with him. Your music is absolutely amazing.    Caroline

Christopher W Fox - Aug 04

Hello Edwina        I saw,heard and indeed, met you (briefly!) when you opened the Jools Holland concert at Harewood House in July.    You really were teriffic - and judging by the comments on your message page I'm not the only one who thinks so.    Even more than this I must tell you how genuinely nice you seemed when I came over to say 'Hello'.  Wish I had been brave enough to chat longer.        Good luck and I hope you will be making an appearance somewhere near (East Midlands) sometime in the future (Though you will probably be sold out!)        Love Steve
Steve Colton - Aug 04

Great set at Nettlestock, Edwina - even when the power went off! haste ye back south of the river - next time we'll arrange some Lincolnshir sunshine for you!
Martyn Gaunt - Jul 04

Hi Edwina - is this a new album? I'll have to try getting it sent out to Oz - you have a small fan club down under, we wish you all the best! Pete (Titchener) tells me you have been signed in Nashville? Fantastic :)
Catherine Anderson - Jul 04

Hi Edwina - just heard you might be putting in an appearance at the Nettlestock Festival in Lincolnshire on 24th July. Heard so much about you, and can't wait to catch you live! And it's a free gig too - better pass the hat round, I reckon you're worth a lot more than that! Best wishes  :o)
Martyn Gaunt - Jul 04

I saw you at the summer pops yesterday supporting Jools Holland.  I've never seen anybody brave enough to silence a crowd that size armed with nothing more than a guitar and a beautiful voice, but you did a fantastic job! You are an inspiration.
Alison - Jul 04

Hi Edwina,  Saw you opening for Jools Holland at Eridge Park, Tunbridge Wells and thought you were fandabidosey!  I wish they had given you longer so you could do more songs.  Come back and play in our neck of the woods again sometime.

Siobhan Hayes - Apr 03

Edwina,    I happened to see you quite by chance at Borders in Islington last night. I heard your beautiful voice floating down from upstairs and just had to go up and see who it was. Bought your CD and played it today - fabulous. What an amazing find you are! You remind me of several of my favourite folk-country singers all rolled into one  - Nanci Griffith, Cathryn Craig and Patty Griffin especially spring to mind. Hoping for more London dates to be announced soon!
Sue - Mar 03

Good Luck Edwina - keep in touch    George & Sue (from way back in London) Jo's Mum and Dad xxxx

I first heard your album 'the road' when my girlfriend bought it home after seeing you perform at 'The Dove' pub in Reading (our boss took her along to see you after cheekily asking me to cover his shift for him, so i missed out big time, damn him!!) Anyway, since then it has been the most listened to album in our collection, utterly utterly beautiful songwriting my dear, and a beautiful voice to boot. Where can i buy another copy of your album and will you ever be coming back to Reading to perform? ...Good luck in ya really need it !!
Lu Anthony - Mar 03

I'm another Westcombe Parker, but couldn't make it to your return gig at the Cafe East as my wife and I already had arrangements for that evening.  We were really miffed, as we have enjoyed many evenings of Edwina and Curry (no, not that one).  We're the couple who passed on the tape of Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts.  Will you be coming back again?  Will there be a bit of warning?  In the meantime, how do we get a copy of your CD?  All the best  Richard and Tricia

Hi ED, it's been a was your trip to south usa....LOST is such a wonderfull song....may I borrow the title for one of my paintings ? I'm back in paris after some italy  and mountain, in my new studio, painting for the coming events; I'd like to have your cd for my rainy lonely nights in the studio; please contact me if you have time; send me the cd at alessandro rolandi 4 rue des ecouffes 75004 Paris or tell how can I get it. my studio reminds me of Altea's one and just a few days ago I found our pictures....the "cappuccino a la plaza de la iglesia connection".  Been to London but U were off to usa; your voice is as sweet as ever but with a new tension and energy; a calm force which goes straight to guts and soul.  a bien tot  your friend  alessandro

Thanks for letting me borrow your guitar and getting me up on stage at 12th&porter.  You are very gracious to help out a beginner like me.  Hope to see you at Sherlock Holmes or Cafe Coco!!

Edwina, I am a big fan. I used to work at the Bedford in Balham. I am currently residing in Ukraine. I am returning to London over the Christmas period, and would love to hear you sing.  If you have any gigs on the card, I would love to know.  email me with where you will be delighting audiences with your wonderful voice.  I shall be there.    Take it easy,    Steve
Stephen Labelle - Dec 02

Edwina, thank you so much for spending an evening with me.  At least that is the way it felt.  The attentive hairless guy at Sherlock Holmes Pub this evening, that's me.  I've seen thousands of musicians and artists over the years and played with just about as many.  Looks like you have plenty of compliments so I'll keep most of them to myself.  I wanted to speak with you this evening, but you were quite busy wrapping things up.  I'm quite sure you have some wonderful stories to tell to go along with that great energy and wisdom.  Since I didn't get to speak with you this evening, I wanted to extend at least a handshake across the miles.  I'm sure you'll continue to create fabulous experiences for yourself and others.    Thanks again for such a spontaneously pleasurable evening.    Best Regards,    John

My good lady, I saw you last evening 9-17-02 at "The Spice of Life" (Up All Night) you were gracefully forceful. Expect great things in Nashville. "You Won Me Over" is a deeply felt shock of songwriting. I hope to see you at the festival hall show. Thank You.

Ooh-er, what happened there? All that #154 and #132&#&132 stuff! Nothing to do with me, guv! Don't worry, Edwina, I was saying nice things about you ;0)
McGee - Jul 02

I think most of the comments here have told the story, so I hardly mind joining the consensus!! What I’d also specifically mention is the whole notion of accessibility – not just merely in the fact that I Want Your Love and Won Me Over are perfect contemporary songs, but in considering the small print of the vocal treatment. There are vocalists of similar technical calibre out there, but too many for my liking are trying to bludgeon the audience down with overt emotion, getting stuck in blind tonal alleys, being more of a ‘ listen to me ‘ power spectacle than a spiritual experience etc. EH avoids all this because she has an instinctive feel for the relaxed,   ‘ bread-and-butter ‘ kind of delivery that is still beguilingly communicative and nurtures creative beauty in itself. As they said of the cricketer Sir Donald Bradman:  ‘ Maybe other batsmen could have scored as many runs as him, but they didn’t.’ Nashville, TN awaits.  
McGee - Jul 02

Edwina, thanks so much for the beautiful songs you sang at our gallery this weekend, and for giving up your time to come down — you really made our first anniversary. I really hope you'll come back and play at the melting pot again, very best wishes, Laurence

Ian Ferguson - Mar 02

All this success, Edwina! - it looks as if the likes of "The Traveller's Rest & "The Duke of Cumberland" have lost you forever! Lovely to see so many people appreciating what has always been a fantastic talent. Stay happy & come back to your roots occasionally !!
Dodge - Feb 02

Edwina, saw you at Cafe East last night 14/02/02. Your voice is fantastic, and you brightened my Valentines Evening, even though this 'Saddo' was celebrating on his own ! Very, very good luck in the future and I will certainly recommend you to other restaurateurs if I have the chance.

Hello Edwina,  Great to hear you on Radio Caroline "Live". It proves you are a true "Live" artist as so many others have to enhance themselves. Also good to hear ou talk as it gives everyone an insight in to your thoughts!  May I hope that you obtain the recognition you deserve.  Best Wishes,  Chris Martin.
Chris Martn - Dec 01

Hi Edwina,      great concert recordings of you on Radio Caroline! What a voice!! Imagine that it was heard all over Europe via Satellite...    (What is 'Virgin radio'??)
Wolf - Nov 01

just had the cd in work and both myself and gary love it, two orders of the cd are on there way via MR A A
michael hill - Nov 01

Haunting, Enchanting, Inspiring!    I heard you on Mark Fox's Virgin Radio show. How come you aren't played daytime?    I've not heard a voice or sound like yours before. I'm a night time truck driver, and had to pull over to listen, THAT GOOD!!!    Where can I get a copy of your CD?    All the best for the future. You deserve much greater recognition than just on late night and "Pirate" radio.
Andy Hammond - Nov 01

I was among the many who were treated to music from Edwina's 'Tuesday Night' Herne Bay gig in Kent on Tony Christian's show on Radio Caroline via my satellite receiver yesterday morning.....    What can I say, marvellous voice, superb performance, I just wish I could have been at the gig, but living 200 miles away it just wasn't possible.....    I did text Tony though to tell him how wonderful your music was on his show yesterday!!!!        I look forward very much Edwina to hearing more of your music on Radio Caroline over the coming weeks and months!!!
Paul Corfield - Nov 01

Dear Edwina, I don't know if you remember me but we met in the bus stop in Nashville, TN.  I have been playing your songs that I have downloaded on here, but where can I get a CD or something else.
Bjac Acquisto - Nov 01

Hi - Rang The Bedford, Balham today and was told gig for 7th November had been cancelled by Edwina.  Suggest you check first if you're thinking of going (020 8682 8940).  I'm so disappointed - had already arranged an evening around it with mates.    Tsk, tsk Edwina, if this is true the site should have been updated - if not, I'll be talking to The Bedford again!!

Steve S - Oct 01

Hi Edwina,  Hope everything is going o.k.I don"t know if you remember me, I was the cab-driver who picked you up when you "moved" house in Greenwich. Many thanks for the c.d.You said it may not be my taste in music, but it is almost constantly played in the car!  Wish you all the best for the future and will try to catch you in concert some time soon.  All the best  Ian Ferguson

Alan gerrans - Oct 01

I heard you the other night on Virgin Radio and thought you were fantastic, lets just hope that someone in the industry heard it as well.  If you don't make it when there are 'acts', like Hearsay around, then it will be a travisty.  I hope to catch you in Blackheath before you become too famous and start to do your stadium tours.  Are you influenced at all by Jewel?
Steven Hine - Oct 01

Heard you on 'Virgin Radio' this morning. I had to pull my Cab over to listen properly. The person in the back sat and listened with me and did not care that he was paying for the privelidge. We discussed you for the rest of the journey and agreed that we would both buy your CD, if one is available.
steve davies - Oct 01

Bernard - Mar 01

Dear Edwina,    I also very much liked your song "I want your Love".  It moved me to tears.   I told you last year I think your songs are very commercial, and you should go for a large publisher with a good reputation whocan place them for you.  They will also find you a recording contract if they can.
