"In a year of isolation, I've felt so fortunate to be able to reach out from my boat through folk music – like an Anchoress through the window of her cell. These are some of the songs and tunes – many of them exploring isolation in its different forms – abandonment, loss etc – that have kept me company, shared my sorrows, inspired a lot of fun and connected me with a wonderful community." Anna Tam.

"an extraordinary vocal performance." Folking.

"gifted with a unique and thoroughly engaging sound" Folk Radio.
