Mary Humphreys and Anahata
January 30 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Songs and tunes with melodeon, concertina, banjo, and cello.
A fabulously talented duo with songs and tunes on melodeon, concertina, cello, and banjo, don’t miss what will be a musically excellent evening.
Mary Humphreys and Anahata are singers and musicians who specialise in English traditional music and song. Mary sings and plays English concertina and banjo, and Anahata plays melodeons, Anglo concertina and cello.
They are now based in West Yorkshire, but from 2001-2017 they lived in Cambridgeshire and much of their material is based on Mary’s research into unpublished locally collected versions of traditional songs, presented in simple but well-crafted musical arrangements.
They have played at folk clubs and festivals all over the country, as well as being regular guests at a traditional music festival in Canada, and have an extensive discography both as a duo and in various collaborations.
