The Summer Series At Somerset House in London is the festival for people who don't like mud or leaving cities and love nice, stately surroundings. Q is previewing all of this year's headliners with a series of interviews and today it's the turn of Anna Calvi who plays in the courtyard on 12 July with Eugene McGuinness and Cold Specks. Head to Somersethouse.org.uk for more details including the latest ticket news.
Describe your 'sound' in three words:
"Passionate. Loud. Guitar."
How will you be travelling to the gig?
"In a taxi."
What can we expect from your set outside in the London air at Somerset House?
"A whole lot of atmosphere, I hope to make it a special experience for the audience."
Is there anything you've got planned for the Somerset House show you can tell us about?
"I do have something very special planned, I don't want to give too much away but it should be very visually stunning."
Can you tell us about the acts on the bill with you?
"Eugene McGuinness is opening, he's an amazing songwriter. I've heard his new album and it's great. Cold Specks is an incredible singer, she's something really special. I'm really looking forward to seeing them both play."
What one song of yours should we listen to get us in the mood for your show and why?
"Suzanne And I, because it's one of my favourites to play live."
The Royal Society used to be housed at Somerset House - what one scientific invention would transform your life and why?
"Could they get rid of feedback in microphones? It's very annoying."
