The Artists

Anna Tabbush & Alexandra Urquhart perform traditional and self-penned folk songs with violin/viola and guitar accompaniment. Both are professional musicians highly regarded in their fields, with a passion for exploring musical possibilities.

Anna Tabbush is a folk singer/song-writer and multi-instrumentalist, community choir leader, choral arranger and composer based in Midhurst. She grew up in a musical household and started performing professionally at the tender age of 15 in her parents’ ceilidh band. She performed with a number of folk bands including MoltenAmba, The Tabbush Sisters, Meridian, The Climax Ceilidh Band, Anna & the Odd Socks and the European Youth Folk Orchestra.

Anna started her first community choir at Kingston University while studying for a degree in Music and Technology. Since then she has set up over 20 community choirs and conducted over 40 across the South-East. She currently runs 5 choirs across West Sussex and Surrey and 2 large singing events a year: SingFest and Spring Sing. Her arrangements of folk and contemporary songs from Britain and around the world have been sung by choirs across the country.

Alexandra Urquhart trained classically as a viola player at Trinity College of Music and then the Royal College of Music. She has performed and toured with orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as playing for a year in Chile with the Orquesta Filarmonica de Santiago.
Since moving to Chichester, West Sussex, Alexandra has been able to fulfil a long-held ambition to explore folk styles and improvisation on the violin and viola.
