Murrayfield performance for The Voice UK winner Craig Eddie ahead of Scotland's Six Nations match
The past winner of The Voice UK, who hails from New Carron, took to the stage at BT Murrayfield on Saturday afternoon, accompanied by his band before the second round match.
With a 67,000 sold out crowd for the Scotland v Wales match, Craig was “buzzing” for the experience which he said would be the biggest crowd he’s performed to yet.
Speaking afterwards about the experience Craig said: “What an honour it was to be asked to perform on the pitch at Murrayfield before kick off. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the Scotland team were warming up as I sang five songs – and kept an eye on the rugby balls flying by. I knew it was a sell out match and the crowd capacity was 67,000 so the pressure was on. The atmosphere was electric and like nothing I have experienced so far. What a buzz!”
Having released his most recent single, Warning Signs at the end of last year, Craig is looking forward to more live performances in the coming months.
He added: “I’m currently arranging some headline shows playing my own songs along with a band of musicians and I can’t wait to get out there and see everyone.”
