A kind of modern-day Troubadour, Odetta has been gaining rave reviews for her live performances across the UK with her unique take on a well known song, highly accomplished musicianship and extensive repertoire.
Odetta knows how to create that "big" sound ideal for Friday or Saturday night entertainment, or even a toned down weekday set. Spanning an impressive ten year musical career, Odetta has a truly versatile style that can be tailored to suit a vast range of different audiences and age groups.
Odetta has shared the bill with musical legends such as Joan Baez, The Stranglers, Eddie Reader and Bob Dylan amongst others, and is therefore no stranger to entertaining large audiences.
It's also worth noting that Odetta prefers to keep her sound 'live' - so you won't find any backing tracks or pre-recorded material at one of her nights - what you see and hear is pure live acoustic entertainment - just exceptional guitar playing and soaring vocals. If required, Odetta also uses a vocal harmoniser pedal, acheiving the effect of two vocals, live, with a unique fuller sound and fantastic soaring harmonies!
Whether it be for a wedding, a private party, a hotel bar, a restaurant or a corporate function - experience an evening of spellbindingly good music - this is pure live acoustic entertainment at its sweetest and best!
Odetta is a professional with over ten years music industry experience, and will make sure that throughout your event, you and your guests will be entertained and provided with a high quality of music that will fit the mood of the occasion just right. Odetta carefully chooses just the right songs from her extensive repertoire and ensures they are tailored to suit each event perfectly.
Odetta always looks glamorous and professional, and when it comes to your event, is also flexible on timings, arriving early if necessary to set up therefore avoiding any unnecessary interruptions to your event. Set up time is usually just less than one hour. Odetta is also extremely flexible with the planning and delivery of each show, and is happy to work with any themes or ideas that you may have in mind for your special occasion.

Odessa played at our wedding and was superb, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
"Odetta was just stunning. She not only exceeded all expectations, but was very flexible when we requested that she play an extra set. Both her voice and her repertoire helped turn a good 40th garden party into an awesome day (and evening) for all. We will definately book her again."
- Pierre, Ascot, Berks - June 2012
"Odetta was brilliant and a gorgeous person to work with. She performed two excellent sets which were quite honestly the highlight of the night. Not only does she have a fantastic voice but she also knows how to play guitar! Absolute quality!”
- Dominic Reed Boat Tours – Feb 2012
"Thank you Odetta for your fantastic performance on Saturday evening. You played all the right songs to create just the right atmosphere – our guests loved you too. We'd like to thank you again for helping make our wedding day so memorable, it was everything we had hoped for."
