English Folk Expo 2021

Anna will be performing at the English Folk Expo Showcase in Manchester this October! The Showcase is an opportunity for artists to showcase their music to industry delegates including record labels, managers, promoters, agents, bookers, and festival organisers.


Anna is so grateful to her booking agent Big Ginger Tom Music for securing this opportunity for her, and is hopeful about any new doors it may open for her.

Mix & Match Collaboration Challenge


During February 2021, Anna took part in a collaboration challenge run by Make Music Abingdon, where musicians could sign up and be placed into groups - many having never met each other before - and collaborate (over video chats) to write and record a song! In Anna's group she was responsible for the lyrics and melody.


The songs were presented in a livestream on 14th March - watch it back on Facebook here, or on YouTube here.

Track of the week - Blues & Roots Radio

Anna's song 'Alaska' was chosen as Track of the Week on Blues & Roots Radio from 17th February 2021.

It is incredible to Anna that the songs from her debut album are still gaining momentum a year after their release, especially despite having had no proper opportunities for self-promotion due to lockdowns!

She is so grateful for the constant support she continues to receive.
