Anna Shannon on Sunday

Anna Shannon
Born into a musical family, by the time Anna Shannon was ten, she was already accomplished on classical flute, and at twelve was playing oboe, clarinet and trumpet. Guitar, fiddle, sax and bowed psaltery followed, but it wasn’t until she was in her early twenties that she discovered the folk scene. He released her first album, The Whale Dreaming in 2006 after winning BBC Radio Yorkshire Songwriter of the Year which she had entered on spec. Since that time Anna has released several more albums, and her latest, A Celebration of Old England, released on the Wild Goose Records label, sees her forging a strong path in today’s diverse folk club and festival circuit.

Anna is making a return visit to the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS this Sunday 5 July at 8.00pm. Tickets on-line or on the door. The venue usually sells Thwaites and/or Southport real ale.
