Anna Calvi – Odeon Theatre Hobart

I first discovered Anna on YouTube back in 2012 where she did a series of songs in the "attic sessions" What caught my attention was the way she was playing the guitar that was almost like it was a harp by using a circular motion when strumming the chords. The other thing was the sound produced just using a VOX AC30 and a USA 90's made Fender Telecaster. It is a clean tone with just a hint of breakup and lots of reverb. I figured that I'd most likely never get the chance to see her live, as living just out of Hobart Tasmania not many of the big names in the music industry actually include Tasmania in their touring schedule. But I was certainly surprised to hear a few months ago that she was to be playing as part of the Dark Mofo (organised by Mona) The evening was awesome! This is her second time in Australia, the first being in 2014.
