Anna Mieke is the musical project of Anna-Mieke Bishop, who performs on Greek bouzouki, guitar and piano. Themes and inspiration for Anna Mieke’s songs stem from a colourful background of experience: learning Maori songs at school in New Zealand; hitch-hiking through Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, picking up traditional songs along the way; cycling from her home in Wicklow to the southern tip of Spain; living in Granada for a time, and then, in Cork, performing cello in the experimental improv group, HEX.

Anna Mieke was one of five RTÉ Folk Award Nominees for ‘Best Emerging Act’ 2019, and is a recipient of the Arts Council’s Next Generation Bursary Award 2020.

“It’s a strikingly confident collection of 10 songs, full of blue sky thinking and wide open horizons...A deliriously renewable energy source.”
