Sings songs, writes them, tells stories.

Welcome to my Website!


2020 has, of course, been extremely difficult, and all of my gigs were cancelled after the March visit to Sheila Miller’s Cellar folk club in London. This was particularly disappointing as I had hoped to be promoting the new album, Astrolabe, as well as my storytelling project, The Tale of Jaufre.

I have, however, been performing some live concerts from various locations at home, such as the sitting room and the hallway (acoustics are better in the hallway!), as well as taking part in some storytelling circles, and I am in the process of recording my podcasts for The Tale of Jaufre, which you can find on Google Podcasts, on, on Spotify and various other locations as well as on this website.See some of my live concerts below:

At the moment I am still hoping that I will be able to perform at the Festival at the Edge in 2021, and that some of the other gigs will be rescheduled eventually.
I’m busy writing a new novel, and there is a new song (Prometheus) which I will record in due course.
Here’s a reminder of an interview I did with Cheryl Beer, as part of her “Remarkable Women” radio programme.
I’m a singer, songwriter, storyteller, writer, workshop facilitator and medievalist, and I hope you can find all the information you need on this site. By all means contact me with any further questions you may have. You can also find me on Facebook at and my channel on YouTube is also TheAnneLister (this is to avoid confusion with the 18th century lesbian diarist!).
