Wendy Weatherby Band at Edinburgh FC / EFC
A fave act at Edinburgh FC, Wendy was last with us at our Burns' Supper in "Oor Rabbie" and is most welcome back with her band tonight. Wendys wide musical interests have led her to sing and play at folk and jazz events worldwide. She has composed music for theatre and film and has vast recording experience as a guest on albums ranging from The Complete Songs of Robert Burns, and The Complete Songs of Robert Tannahill to The Pearlfisherss Sky Meadows.
Her own CD's: A Breath on the Cold Glass, Two Loves (Lochshore) and A Shirt of Silk or Snow (Fellside) show her love of song as well as instrumental work; she was nominated in the Scots Trad Awards 2010 as Traditional Singer of the Year. Her commissions for Celtic Connections Daybreak on the Worlds Edge, poems of William Soutar set for cello quartet and three male voices, and a large scale work based on Lewis Grassic Gibbons Sunset Song feature some of the best traditional musicians in Scotland.
Theatre productions include Bill Brydens The Ship and The Big Picnic'; John Betts adaptations of Burns, The Jolly Beggars and Para Handy, and Wee Storiess award winning production Arthur, The Story of a King. She has composed, performed and directed music for Wee Stories, Lung Has, Foolish Notion, Storyteller Scotland and Mull Theatre, and currently works regularly with Andy Cannon, one of Scotlands most highly regarded storytellers.
Wendy continues to guest with musicians of many styles the cello being well suited to the dark realms of the singer/songwriter to teach at workshops and festivals and, of course, perform with the Wendy Weatherby Band!
