Anna Shannon is the guest singer at the Bothy this Sunday. Anna was born in Scarborough into a musical family, her grand father being a concert pianist and her mother a jazz singer. A multi-instrumentalist since an early age, her musicianship has led her to play styles as diverse as skiffle, blues, jazz, folk-rock, ceilidh and Cajun over the years, but since she discovered her talent as a singer-songwriter, it is her solo work that is now attracting a lot of attention. She was BBC Radio Yorkshire's Songwriter of the Year in 2006.
Here she is playing her own "Yorkshire Song".
The show begins at 8.00pm, and there is real ale from Thwaites. The Bothy is at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS.
