Welcome to the Eva Cassidy Web Site, a resource for those seeking information about the late singer Eva Cassidy.

Eva died in 1996 from melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Her music was little-known during her 33 years of life, but today her soul-stirring voice is reaching people all over the world.

For some fans, the pleasure of listening is enough. Others want to know more: “Who was this remarkable singer? Why haven’t we heard of her before? Are there more albums?” This web page can be your gateway to the music of Eva Cassidy.

  • Contact the Webmaster via e-mail – also there is now an “About This Web Site” page that will tell you vastly more than you want to know

  • Search the Web Site: There is a rudimentary search box at the bottom on the left. Unfortunately it is not very good and only shows one result per page; then you have to go to the next page and more to find what you’re looking for. If anyone happens to know of a better way to get a search function on a WordPress site without any advertising, please let me know.
