3.35pm- 3.55pm

Fiddle player, singer and composer Anna Hughes has just completed her final year of Folk and Traditional Music at Newcastle University, with a year studying in the folk music department of The Sibelius Academy, Helsinki.

Intrigued by simplicity and beauty, Anna is committed to finding a personal relationship with folk song. Having lived in many places in the UK is intrinsically linked to her connection to traditional music – its ability to create a sense of home and belonging is something she seeks to incorporate in to her work. A founding member of the contemporary folk quartet, Balter, she also writes music for theatre; her sound design for the award winning In Tandem Theatre Company’s A Great Fear of Shallow Living was showcased at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and then later transferred to London. This has led to a long term collaboration with actor, writer and sister to Anna, Isobel Hughes.

Anna & Isobel are taking part in Sage Gateshead’s Summer Studios, an artist residency programme.
