The Eddies! Singing!
Welcome to our Home Page. The Eddies sing songs of Work, Love and Death. Four voices, in two and a half part harmony. For the fun of it. It’s all about the harmony.
Our friendship and our music is grounded along the banks of the Mississippi River in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. We’ve been at our singing for a long time now. Still going strong.
We sing many songs without instruments at all; that’s about as basic as music can get. When we want to really pour it on we add a guitar and an accordion. Because of the singing we do, our sound does not really qualify as “background” music. No, we are about singing, fun and having people be a part of the music. If you haven’t heard us before, we would love to see you at one of our shows.
NO PICNIC THIS YEAR!
We could not get all the Eddies together in St. Paul this Memorial Day weekend and, so, we will not be hosting the annual picnic down by the river. Can you believe it? It’s true. No picnic.

Quotable Quotes Department
“… I soon got used to this singing, for the sailors never touched a rope without it. … Some sea captains, before shipping a man, always ask him whether he can sing out at a rope.”
-Herman Melville, Redburn, Chapter 9 (1849
