The excitement at Greywood Arts is growing as we prepare for our Opening Celebration on July 1st. It promises to be a very beautiful night you won’t want to miss!
We are delighted to welcome Anna Mitchell, who will please your ears with her extraordinary voice. She will play the Opening with the support of her band and it is going to be powerful!
Anna recently took the Opera House in Cork by storm as a special guest with Jack O’Rourke. The singer–songwriter-keyboardist moves confidently between soulful Americana, brooding late night ballads, and country-tinged folk. Her music pays homage to the past yet carves out a unique and contemporary space for her gorgeous voice – called “hauntingly beautiful” by RTE.
With a reputation as a passionate live performer able to capture an audience, Anna has performed and toured with many celebrated singers and songwriters including Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan, Mick Flannery, John Smith, Duke Special, Lisa Hannigan and many more. She impressed the celebrated American poet and songwriter Simone Felice so much that he invited her to work with him on his new album.
After the release of her debut album ‘Down to the Bone’ in 2015, she has returned to the studio to record the follow up. Look out 2017, we will soon see some new music from the Cork-based songstress.
It’s Friday night and we say start your weekend off right with some great music by Anna Mitchell!
