Laura Cannell

Laura Cannell is a British composer and improvising recorder player and violinist. 

Laura Cannell draws on the emotional influences of the landscape and the sometimes dissonant chords of early and medieval music. With deconstructed bow and double recorders, Laura performs semi-composed, semi-improvised pieces which explore the spaces between ancient and experimental music creating music that is rooted in but not tethered to the past.

She has released four critically acclaimed solo albums and is regularly broadcast on the BBC including Radio 3, 4 and 6Music and international radio. She has been a guest contributor to 6Music and was also invited to compile her own hour long playlist, she writes a monthly column about music and nature for Caught by the River.
