amazing events, fantastic culture projects, and good times
It's been too long since Ana Silvera last played in Windsor, and The Library at The Hope is the perfect place to showcase her intimate and mesmerising performance style.
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, her 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 on Gearbox Records, July 6). 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 version of the piece, and be joined by a special multi-instrumentalist guest.
Over the past few years, Ana has toured and performed her songs throughout England, collaborated with early music ensemble Concerto Caledonia and the Estonian Girls Choir, composed and sung in a full-length original work, 'Cassandra', for Royal Ballet.
