Eddie Barclay

Eddie Barclay, from Sandwick, has been one of Shetland's most popular entertainers since the release of his first album in 1983.
Eddie's father - Wille Barclay, and Uncle - John Barclay, were both prolific songwriters. And by combining their songs with those of Eddie Smith, another Sandwick man, Barclay's first album, "Hame Aboot" quickly became on of the most popular albums in Shetland.
The humour in the songs captured the natural ability of Shetlanders to have a good laugh at almost anything, and during the 1980s a night of songs by Eddie Barclay was a certain success in venues all over the isles.
