Anne Renshaw is an Edinburgh based folksinger/songwriter originally from the Scottish Borders who sings and plays her own material but also any other songs that happen to take her fancy. These tend to be from the Scottish tradition but can be more recent folk songs from anywhere really. She has even been known to come out with the very occasional ‘pop’ song! Very much a latecomer to the folk scene, having only started writing and performing after she got early retirement from teaching in 2006, she is now doing her best to make up for lost time.
ANNE RENSHAW SINGS! - Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 - Another sell out show
Following her 2012 sell-out show which was given a 4* review by Broadway Baby - 'Her songs, inspired by her local surroundings and life growing up in the Borders delight the audience with their melodic charm and sweet humour......' Anne returned to the Acoustic Music Centre on Wednesday August 14th with guests 'Muckle Flugga'. See the NEWS page for more details .
Anne's debut CD ‘Awakening’, recorded at Ian McCalman's Kevock Digital studio features a selection of her own songs including ‘The Isle of Arran’ and the much requested ‘The Number 37’. For details of where to purchase the album please go to the CD 'AWAKENING' page using the above link.
'Anne sings her own songs in a clear, lovely voice - songs that will touch you, songs that will make you laugh, songs that will stay with you, songs that will surely be picked up by other singers. From The Isle of Arran (track 1) to The Ancient Capon Tree (near Jedburgh, track 14) you will be taken on an entertaining journey through the history and landscape of Scotland. If you love this wee country you'll enjoy this fine Ian McCalman produced album.' .......Scott Murray (Sangsters)
