English folk singer Hannah Sanders is fast building a reputation as one of the most exciting singers of folk song around. Her debut Charms Against Sorrow was released in February 2015 to critical acclaim, with Mike Harding hailing it “Absolutely fantastic… Every track is a pearl!”
“Blessed with a peerlessly pure voice… Catch her while you can!” ★★★★ The Express
Hannah grew up travelling Europe singing unaccompanied folk songs in 4-part harmony with her family band, The Dunns. She then left music to pursue a career as a cultural anthropologist, becoming a leading expert on contemporary witchcraft and popular culture. She lived in Boston, MA where she sung with Liz Simmons (Low Lily).
“Refreshingly unafraid to take risks, delivering an intensely personal interpretation at all times. A force to be reckoned with.” fRoots
Her recent return to Britain coincided with a return to folk singing, accompanied on baritone dulcimer and guitar. Following 2 well-received EPs (Warning Bells and Fate) debut album Charms Against Sorrow, produced by Ben Savage (The Willows), was released on Sungrazing Records on 2nd February 2015, with the album’s opener I’ll Weave My Love A Garland previewed on Mark Radcliffe’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
“Beautiful; Charms Against Sorrow is a joy to listen to.” Bright Young Folk
