Hannah Read

Hailing from Scotland and now based in Brooklyn, Hannah Read is a versatile multi-instrumentalist widely recognised on the International stage. She’s best known for her fiddle playing, songwriting and was recently described as one of “the finest singers of the day” in the UK’s MOJO Magazine.

Hannah leads her own band and is an in-demand collaborator on both sides of the Atlantic, including one part of the critically acclaimed British folk super-group ‘Songs of Separation’, winners of ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Her original songs are largely influenced by the people, places and landscapes she has encountered along the way, as well as musings of home, travel, love and loss – as can be heard on her critically acclaimed new album Way Out I’’ll Wander (Hudson Records) which is compiled of “nine gorgeous originals” (The Guardian).
