Anna is a superb singer-songwriter and talented multi-instrumentalist whose songs are consistently original and inventive. She combines a captivating stage presence with an endearing naivety that reaches out to the whole audience.

Anna has performed mainly on the folk scene playing all kinds of venues from small clubs to large festivals. She’s made five albums including  ‘Pockets On Fire’ which was released on the Fairport Convention label ‘Woodworm’ with Fairport playing on eight of the tracks.

Fairport Convention covered and recorded Anna’s songs: ‘Sailing Boat’ in 1997, ‘The Crowd’ in 2002 and ‘Bring Me Back My Feathers’ in 2015. Anna played the 20,000 strong Cropredy Festival from 1998 to 2005 and then again in 2014 – three of these performances being full sets of her own. She also played there on Eddi Reader’s set in 2001 and as part of Deborah Rose’s band in 2014 and, continuing her relationship with Fairport, supported them on their UK Winter Tour in 1999 as well as joining them on several of their acoustic UK tours and recording on five of their albums.

I first heard Anna perform three years ago in Coventry, and since then I have been, I think, her biggest fan. The originality of her songs and her musicianship place her in the forefront of young British singer-songwriters.  Why she is not headlining concerts seven days a week is a mystery to me.

I first saw annA rydeR at Faversham folk club, perhaps someone will tell me how long ago, but it must be 15 years at least. She is a unique, quirky, warm, intelligent and nutty performer, but most of all - captivating. I love her sense of crazy and her brilliant songs, and am thrilled she's coming to entertain us in the Black Robin.
