Fireflies is singer-songwriter Annalie Wilson’s monthly residency at Bar 48, a haven of cosy music and Eritrean cuisines on the border of Brixton and Oval.
This is a space for ordinary magic.
There will be an element of spontaneity.
Entry is free, and there will be an opportunity to make donations. CDs will also be on sale.
This month Annalie is joined by her friend and fellow musician Amy Firth, a lively open-hearted singer, songwriter, guitarist and interfaith minister: www.amyfirth.com
Raised west of Sydney, in the cloud-cloaked villages of the Blue Mountains, her songs are rooted in the eucalyptus and wood-smoke of an Australian winter. Amy’s music is a mosaic of jazz, folk, rock and blues. She sings from the heart and rocks from the soul.
Annalie and Amy first met while performing at Thames Festival in 2012, which marked the closing of the London Olympics. They quickly became friends and devoted fans of each other’s music. In 2014 Amy invited Annalie to perform on her charity single, a cover of the Decemberists’ “Meant For The Stage” – https://
Annalie also offered keys on Amy’s debut EP, Watchmaker’s Daughter. Amy opened for Annalie at her 2014 album launch of “Open Heart Circus” at The Bedford and more recently at “The Cold Blows” album launch in January this year at Bar 48. The pair continue to gig together when possible, and often add harmonies and backing on each other’s songs.
