Amber Music's page for Anita Best
Simply presented traditional folk music like Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy, Waterson:Carthy, Cordelia's Dad's a cappella songs, and her work with Pamela Morgan as Anita Best and Pamela Morgan
Anita Best has a strong, assured voice and her strong love for traditional material is clear in her work. Delightful! (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Crosshanded is the only solo material currently available.
Canada, and by mail order
Highly recommended for fans of traditional music
Great a cappella renderings of traditional Newfoundland folk songs (Celtic in origin). Anita Best has a lovely voice, and if you like simply presented traditional music, get this disc! The material is wonderful as is the presentation. (Neile)
Anita Best also works with French Newfoundlanders Bernard Felix and Norman Formanger as well as guitarist Sandy Morris.
