Ana Silvera at Colchester Arts Centre
‘Wonderful modern folk’ – The Quietus
Ana Silvera’s folk and bluegrass-tinged tunes are lyrical, intimate and emotive, works of ‘lavish, vivid imagination’ (Metro). Drawing on stories from her own eventful life as well as folklore and myth, Ana’s songs are vignettes, poignant snapshots in time that weave poetry and melody to magical effect.
Over the past few years, Ana has toured and performed her songs throughout the UK and Europe, collaborated with early music ensemble Concerto Caledonia, and composed and sung in a full-length original work, ‘Cassandra’, for Royal Ballet. Now she returns to the stage to play new solo material as well as songs from her latest release, Oracles (The Guardian Critics Pick 2018). For this special show in Colchester, she will be joined by award-winning double bassist Jasper Høiby.
