Uncategorisable and genre-defying, ANNA MEREDITH is a Scottish composer, producer and performer.
Before the release of her debut studio album Varmints – which was awarded Scottish Album of the Year in 2016 – Anna Meredith was already well known as a writer of music for other people. Taking commissions from international orchestras, operas and cultural institutions, she's written symphonies, songs and string quartets, and explored boomwhackers, beatboxing and body percussion.
Her second album, FIBS, was shortlisted for the 2020 Hyundai Mercury Prize, combining acoustic and electronic sounds in her truly unique compositional voice.
Her music has been heard at the Proms, in motorway service station flash-mob performances and on haute-couture catwalks. Now you can hear Anna Meredith MBE – awarded for Services to Music in the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours List – as part of our Saturday lineup.
