Anonymous asked: Molly - if you someow end up in London on Dec 13th, I've got a ticket and a drink with your name on them! Small token of appreciation for the treasure trove of Anna gifts. ;)

Who is this…? This is so sweet! Thank you, I won’t be there unless I win the lottery that I don’t enter, but it’s such a kind thought.

Anonymous asked: Can you upload Anna's recent roundtable session? I can't get iplayer to work.

I have been meaning to! I’ll try to remember to upload it to youtube tonight.

Anonymous asked: Hey, Molly, was just once more diving into your archive, this endless source of treasures :). First of all I think it was/is your birthday these days? If I'm too early, just ignore this, if I'm too late, then I hope you had a fantastic day, and if I'm right on time, then Happy Birthday and all the best :). Someone asked you once about instrumentals from Anna's debut, were there any others than Rider to the Sea? Do you think she will release a DVD of the special show? Best wishes, Beate x

Hi Beate, thank you it was last week! It was a nice day. Yes, there are a few copies floating around of a CD that Domino produced (I think it was for if people wanted to use the songs in media) that has the instrumentals of all the songs from the first album. I uploaded them to my youtube channel here if you want to listen to them. And, I’m not holding my breath but I really, really, really hope they release a DVD. So many of my friends are going and I’m so sad I’m not :(

Hi everyone,

On Saturday December 13th, I will be hosting a very special one off show in the beautiful intimate surroundings of St John Church of Hackney in London.

The Heritage Orchestra - who I had the pleasure of working with for the Giorgio Moroder show at the Sydney Opera House - will be providing a string section and an all female choir, and I will be inviting past, present, and future collaborators on the night to join me as special guests on stage.

We will be performing new orchestra versions of my album songs, some album songs that have never ever been performed live, new covers, and hopefully some new original material!

I’m looking forward to this show so much. 

Tickets will be on sale at 9am GMT this Wednesday here: http://bit.ly/ACStJohns

I hope to see you at the show

Anna x
