"The Poozies remain one of Scotland's most distinctive and best loved folk acts, having blazed a trail not only for female musicians, but by mixing and matching myriad styles and material. From pop hits to gaelic songs, Americana ballads to original tunes, gorgeous four part harmonies to gutsy instrumental attack" - Sue Wilson, Celtic Connections
"Alive with dynamic gear changes, tempos, moods and winsome catchiness, often hypnotic in its lure" - Living Tradition
Annie Sumi is an ethereal-folk artist with a unique ability to capture the subtleties of nature and spin them into melodies. Her latest release, "In the Unknown", is a collection of stories that speak to the journey of the human experience. Since the release of her debut album, she has received nominations for "New/Emerging Artist of the Year" (Canadian Folk Music Awards, 2018), "Best Singer-Songwriter" (TIMAs, 2015), "New/Emerging Artist of the Year" (Hidden Roots Collective, CFMAs, 2017), and more. This year, with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, Annie Sumi carried these landscapes of sound across Canada, coast-to-coast, and Central Europe. Her live performance is a journey into the permeable nature of the heart; she is a vulnerable vessel that consistently leaves it all on the stage, and inspires the audience to feel something.
