“For those who are partial to female folk singers, Anna Hawkins is the real deal”
(Keeping Up With NZ).
In her new show, New Zealand songstress Anna Hawkins pays homage to the female singer-songwriters of the 60s and 70s who revolutionised folk music. “With a voice, range and expressive tone that could turn a nursery rhyme into something beautiful” (Sunday Star Times) Anna will perform songs from the likes of Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Bobbie Gentry and more, alongside traditional folk music that experienced a resurgence in the 60s folk music revival.
To close the evening Anna will premiere material from her upcoming album ‘Wide Open Spaces’.
“Some singers are gifted with a voice that has the power to uplift - irrespective of the song being sung. Anna Hawkins is one such individual ... her voice enfolds and enhances all musical material that crosses her path.” (NZ Musician)
