was the winner of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional
Musician of the Year 2003 Award. A talented multi-instrumentalist,
she excels in playing the fiddle, mandolin and tenor banjo.
Though perhaps most impressive is her guitar playing - equally
at home either accompanying in her unique rhythmic style
or flatpicking tunes, Massie's dexterity shines through.
She has performed twice at the Celtic Colours International
Festival in Cape Breton. As well as solo performances, Anna
also formed the Anna Massie Band - a trio featuring the
impressive guitar and vocal talents of Jenn Butterworth
and the outstanding accordion and border pipe playing of
Mairearad Green. With performances at Celtic Connections,
Shetland, Orkney, Hebridean Celtic and Tønder festivals,
this year saw these talented young women's careers go from
strength to strength. This year's performances included
Celtic Connections, many British folk clubs, Goderich, Ontario
and two tours of Sweden. Anna is one of the most sought
after musicians in Scotland today.
