Eden's Daughter is a female-fronted rock band from Cumbria. Recently reformed after a long hiatus, this show at The Old Fire Station on Saturday, April 25th marks the 21st Anniversary of the band. Founder member Andrew 'Spud' Sinclair, who is lead guitarist with Folk-Rock band Steeleye Span, is returning to his Hard-Rock roots with Eden's Daughter. The band now features the astonishing voice of Mandi Leonard and the five-piece band will play a set of hard-rocking originals interspersed with some familiar, some unexpected and some shocking covers from the classic rock world. Join us to celebrate the coming-of-age of Eden's Daughter!
Tickets are £10.00 and are available online and via OFS direct.
