Anna Smyrk
Performing at The Water Rats
Sunday 6th September

Folk troubadour Anna Smyrk has come a long way since growing up on a lavender farm in Australia. With her sun-drenched voice and songs about far-flung corners of the world, Anna’s music paints stunning pictures of places she’s lived- from the sapphire waters of the Solomon Islands to a dusty city in Cambodia.

She returns to the UK this summer with her trio and a live show featuring glowing harmonies, masterful violin and mandolin, songs in several languages, and lots of stories.

“Her lilting vocals have an uplifting warmth.”Folk Radio UK:

“A heady mixture of lilting folk and dark Americana-style country, combining effortlessly.” Rhythms magazine..

Anna’s sophomore EP came out in November 2019. It was featured in Folk Radio UK magazine and spun on BBC, ABC and community radio around the world. Having lived and worked in many places around Asia and the Pacific Island, the EP is a collection of songs inspired by her time living in these wild places. The songs evokes images of turquoise oceans, dreamy tropical heat and finding yourself in circumstances where you have to throw your assumptions out the window.
