Get set for a fantastic evening of music
By David Wood
Where: SVA, The Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 3AP
When: Friday, March 29, 8pm
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.
She will be joined by double bassist Japer Høiby (Phronesis) and cellist Graham Coe (the Jellyman's daughter).
For this unique event Ana will be also be joined by The Stroud Fringe Choir, who will open up the evening with their own performance. A collective put together by award-winning composer Emily Hall, the Fringe Choir draws on Stroud's rich musical community, arranging and reimagining songs by local artists as well as some more well-known musical figures.
For her spring tour, alongside other original work, Ana will perform songs from her latest release, an alt-folk song cycle, Oracles (out now on Gearbox Records).
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.
