Straddling the worlds of experimental folk, chamber, early and medieval music, performer/composer Laura Cannell is an international artist based in Suffolk. This is the first live performance of her latest record Antiphony of the Trees, inspired by Suffolk birdsong.

Now based in rural East Anglia, Laura’s semi-composed, semi-improvised compositions draw on the emotional influences of the landscape and explore the spaces between early and experimental music that is rooted in but not tethered to the past, but rather forges a new space for her minimalist chamber music.   

Laura has released six albums since 2014, successfully carving out a unique path with her work, receiving critical acclaim from the contemporary music press and regularly being included in numerous Album of the Year lists (including The Guardian, MOJO, BBC Radio 3, The Wire and The Quietus).   

She recently created new work as part of a Britten Pears residency, which has evolved into this first performance of Antiphony of the Trees.
