About the Event
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Anna Tam gives traditional British folk 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. ‘an extraordinary vocal performance’ Folking
‘The string playing is of another dimension… Anna Tam is a find’ Irish Music Magazine
‘a ghostly set of British traditionals… nyckelharpas and hurdy-gurdys give her endeavours a necessary heave of grit.’ The Guardian
