Eddi Reader makes a return to Angus this weekend.

This Friday (November 22) Eddi Reader will make a welcome return visit to Angus with a concert at Montrose Town Hall as part of her current UK tour.

The appearance is courtesy of Regular Music in association with Montrose Music Festival and will be her second gig in the town after a stellar headline performance in May 2012.

Eddi Reader grew up in the west of Scotland and it was there that she learned to use music as a vehicle for communicating with others through busking and performing at the local folk clubs.

In the early 1980s, Eddi travelled around Europe with circus and performance artists before moving to London where she quickly became a sought-after session vocalist.

She famously harmonised with Annie Lennox touring with the Eurythmics, after her time with successful punk outfit Gang of Four.

It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience.

The single ‘Perfect’ and parent album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts.

Since then she has carved an eclectic musical career, adopting any number of musical styles and making them her own.

Eddi’s latest solo album, ‘Vagabond’, will released in February 2014 on Reveal Records. As a special thank you to her fans, the album will be available to purchase at the show, months before the official release.

Support comes from Irish contemporary singer-songwriter Kieran Goss.

Tickets are available from Ticketmaster, priced £25 or in person from B@r, Hume Street Montrose.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
