Ciaran Dorris’ guest on this week’s Sunday Session is Anna MacDonald. Listen in on sunday from 5 – 7 pm.
Anna MacDonald is a singer and songwriter of folk songs that show her celtic roots. A multi-instrumentalist she is able to play the piano, guitar and clarsach which she beautifully intertwines with both English and Gaelic songs.
Anna was raised in Glasgow but spent every summer on the Isle of Skye where her family’s roots run deep. Her Highland connections had a strong influence on her from an early age: Anna learned more from the family ceildihs she attended than she ever did in school. In 2003 Anna spent a year studying at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Scotland’s Gaelic College, which cemented her love for the language.
Ann’s next gig is on Saturday 30th October at the Autum Glory Festival, Harewood House, near Leeds.
