Anna Calvi is an astounding guitarist.  She’s been compared to Jimi Hendrix for her virtuosity and innovation.  Her first instrument – the one she studied at University and has a degree in – isn’t guitar at all.  It’s the violin.

She has a particular style of playing. She strums the guitar in a circular motion rather than up and down, producing a very orchestral sound.  Her influences come from the classical and jazz world as well as classic rock.  And it shows.
