reviews A Celebration of Old England by Anna Shannon

This is a triumph! Anna writes all fourteen songs and plays all the many instruments; she also double-tracks herself singing. The result is a driving and fascinating venture, especially as her voice is very fine, and grand to listen to. Several of her songs deal with country trades in a simple and sympathetic way, grounded in her voice and instrumentation. A truly remarkable talent, elegantly brought out in this recording I concur!
