Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize, the dark and stormy singer-songwriter plays David Byrne’s Meltdown

To pick up one Mercury Prize nomination is impressive; to pick up two suggests that you’ve quietly become an eminent force in British music. Always a hypnotic performer, Anna Calvi had her second album ‘One Breath’ tipped by the Mercury panel last year, and here she’ll be playing a special show in collaboration with the Heritage Orchestra, featuring synthesizers and a 12-piece choir.
