ANA SILVERA IN CONCERT
Friday 14 September 2018
The Exchange - London Road, Twickenham
'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.
For this autumn tour, alongside other original work, Ana will perform songs from her latest release, an alt-folk song cycle, Oracles (out now on Gearbox Records as vinyl, CD & digital download). Written in response to the sudden passing of her brother, Oracles charts a transformative journey from profound grief to tentative acceptance. For this concert, she will perform a duo versions of Oracles songs alongside singer/multi-instrumentalist Josephine Stephenson (Radiohead, Nils Frahm).
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 the Estonian Girls Choir and composed and sung in a full-length original work, 'Cassandra', for Royal Ballet.
‘Stunning…magical story-telling’ – The Guardian.
