Anne was nominated for 13 awards, including best original music, at the Canadian Screen Awards. It brought home a couple of awards home including BEST DRAMATIC SERIES.
Playing all the guitar, mandolin, and slide for this series has been a fantastic experience. I’m entrusted with a huge amount of freedom in the creation of my parts. Everything I’ve done was recorded from my studio in Toronto and sent to the composers remotely. We heard the final mix at the same time as the audience.
I’m glad the series is doing well and being recognized. It’s a beloved Canadian classic and this version seems to be satisfying the hardcore traditional fans. However, Anne offers so much for modern audiences in a world were the role of women and gender are being rapidly redefined.
