The new album ASTROLABE
Purchase from my store here:
Twelve songs, which, like the astrolabe of the title track, measure time and space. One song written in 1970, another written in 2019. A ring found at the Roman archaeological site of Vindolanda, a box of memorabilia belonging to a grandmother, a WWI battle, an olive branch for a former lover, the near-death experience of rats, a farewell to a dear friend, and an angel in the form of a starving polar bear. Amongst others.
Musicians and allies involved were Mike O’Connor, Barbara Griggs, Matt Crum, Steafan Hannigan, Mary McLaughlin, Helen Vincent-Tibke, Steve Purbrick, with studio engineers Liv Elliott in Boscastle, Dylan Fowler in Stiwdio Felin Fach, and Anne’s very talented nephew Rhys Fletcher, who mixed four songs and mastered the whole album.
The recording of “Astrolabe” has been delayed by a number of factors, including the sad loss of Liv Elliott, and by Anne’s PhD research on Jaufre. It was made possible by the enormous generosity of John Bedford, a long-term supporter of Anne’s music. A difficult and long process, but we hope it’s been worth the wait.
