Shortlisted as ‘Folk Instrumentalist of the Year’ 2020 and 2021 by Fatea Magazine, singer and multi-instrumentalist Anna Tam gives traditional British songs her own loving personal twist. She sings with a clear bright voice and accompanies herself on a selection of traditional and historical string instruments including the nyckelharpa, viola da gamba, hurdy gurdy, cello, piano and whatever else she can find. Her approach to the folk tradition is centred in the stories the songs tell and the people who lived them. Her acclaimed second album ‘Hatching Hares’ is just released and touring in the UK in summer 2022 before Anna goes to the US and Europe in the autumn.
