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. Still, we are all about the 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.
How Many Eddies Are There?
Original Eddie, Paul Martin (Wyoming Brown) resides full-time in the Arizona metroplex. While he comes back for many of our gigs, he just can’t make it to our weekly practice/socializing sessions. To fill this gap, and to add even more musical depth to our line-up and to our performances, we asked another Paul — Paul Garding — to join us. It is our delight to have him aboard.
The Eddies’ all-Minnesota line-up.

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
