Eva Cassidy Comes Alive in Zoetermeer

Twenty years ago this month Eva Cassidy recorded Live At Blues Alley in Georgetown DC. The album was meant to be her great breakthrough, but in that same year, 1996, the modest, but talented singer died. Not until four years later her voice and her songs reached many people’s hearts all over the world. No one singer mastered so many genres as well as she did. In the United Kingdom Eva Cassidy has a cult status; her popularity in the Netherlands is still growing. Eva Cassidy’s renditions of ‘Fields Of Gold’ and ‘Songbird’ end up high in the top 2000 every year.

A year ago the first Eva Cassidy fan club was founded. This happened at a beautiful well-attended meeting where people enjoyed music and memories of Eva Cassidy. Humberto Tan became the fan club’s honorary member that night; Eva’s life story still inspires the famous Dutch talk show host.

February 4th (in the week when Eva Cassidy would have celebrated her 53rd birthday) her music will resound impressively during a show with Jerney Kate and her band in City Theatre Zoetermeer. Their repertoire is as varied as Eva Cassidy’s was: from refined folk songs like ‘Autumn Leaves’ to the solid rhythm-and-blues of ‘Take Me To The River’. A year ago this Eva Cassidy Tribute Band put up a stunning performance: “It’s as if Eva Cassidy has come alive,” Gooi- en Eemlander newspaper commented; expactations are high again!
