Anna Tam plays the Great Hall

Striking vocals and string playing of another dimension

Venue: Hay Castle, Great Hall

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Tam weaves together genre-bending, synaesthestic threads of sound, light and emotion. Shortlisted as ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ 2020 and 2021 by Fatea Magazine, her technical brilliance on nyckelharpa, hurdy gurdy, viola da gamba, cello… together with her pure voice and compelling message, move us from trauma – via her neurodivergence, intellect and unlimited love – to a place where our childhood dreams and deepest desires are fulfilled.

Anna performed at Hay Castle earlier this year in February, with fellow Coracle band members Paul Hutchinson and Karen Wimhurt and their music was brilliantly received by all who came to enjoy it.

Anna will perform songs from her forthcoming album as well as favourites from her first two acclaimed solo albums “Anchoress” and “Hatching Hares”. She is joined by santouri player and accordionist Jon Banks (Royal Shakespeare Company, ZRI) with whom she is touring the United States this October.
