Anna McLuckie is an Edinburgh born Nu-folk singer and Clàrsach player. Having studied Jazz and Classical music from a young age, Anna grew up around a piano learning songs from both the Scottish trad world as well as The Great American Songbook. Now based in London, Anna has performed in places around the world from Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, to a concert series in Russia, to wee house shows and folk sessions.

Anna’s debut album TODAY, EVERYDAY was released independently in 2021. The album was recorded in Salford at Blueprint Studios with a cohort of musicians who have been playing together in Manchester for the last ten years. Lyrically these songs carry a storybook quality, which when met with complex interweaving layers of harmony, leave us with an album of contemporary folklore.
“A voice like birdsong” – Bella Caledonia
“A haunting collection of nu-folk poetry set to music” – Only A Northern One
