Eilidh Patterson

Eilidh Patterson

Eilidh (pronounced I-Lee) is a warm, engaging performer of startling clarity.  With songs that cut straight to the heart, delightfully accurate guitar playing and crystal clear vocals, Eilidh immediately connects with audiences everywhere.  In recent years, she has performed in the States, the UK and in Europe. Eilidh is currently touring across NI celebrating the release of her third studio album, Sunshine.  Recorded in Glasgow earlier this year, this record pulses with positivity featuring life affirming new songs, showcasing Eilidh's continued growth and maturity as a writer and singer.


Eilidh Patterson's voice is velvet and air. The richness of her sound and her songs is something beautiful to behold and she is definitely an artist to watch!
