"Wherever You Go is the life story put to music of Anna Ludlow. Her career has taken her all over the globe and the essence of that journey flows through the tunes and songs of this album. Her playing is amazingly clear and fresh. Her heart and soul comes through in her passionate delivery of every note. This is not your average album, it is well thought out and flawlessly delivered. You can hear the pride of her heritage and skill of her years of touring in top billed productions throughout. Being mixed and mastered by Dave Gunning and the Wee House of Music only adds to the quality of this body of work. It is a "must own" for any serious collector of East Coast Celtic music." (Phil McIntyre, New England Celtic Arts.)
Anna is a Nova Scotia-born, Ottawa-based musician who fuses traditional Celtic tunes with a modern percussive vibe and showcases her versatility as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Her high-energy performances have the audience singing along with her original songs, or favourite East Coast ballads and dancing in the aisles to her upbeat fiddle tunes.
Anna has played her fiddle to captivated audiences throughout North America and Europe for over twenty years. Having collaborated with some of eastern Canadas most renowned artists, in 2005 she became the principal fiddler for the Juno nominated critically acclaimed production DRUM! She recently finished a 15 month run with the Toronto production of the hit and award-winning show COME FROM AWAY.
Outside of theatre work Anna is influenced by her working-class Celtic ancestry, and fuses the traditional Cape Breton music of the Scottish Gàidhealtachd with a modern percussive vibe. While weaving other cultural influences into her music, this multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and song-writer uses her dynamic performances to give listeners a modern taste of history and culture. She is a successful solo artist singer/songwriter having been nominated for an East Coast Music Award and a Music Nova Scotia Award for her first album Reel to Reel.
In Ottawa Anna continues to be a big part of the Celtic performance scene, in addition to teaching scores of students. From Hogmany, Festival of Small Halls, Almonte CeltFest and Stewart Park Festival to performing on Parliament Hill for National Fiddling Day and on the ice for the Tim Hortons Brier she brings life and new perspectives to the Ottawa music scene. As a performance instructor in Fiddle and Celtic Voice at Carleton University, and with her busy private teaching schedule she shares her talents freely and is inspiring a whole new generation of players.

You may wonder, where does the name come from? Kichesippi means The Great River. Prior to 1855, when the City of Ottawa was founded, the river that ran through the city was known as the Kichesippi. That river has been an integral part of the history of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario for many years and since we are strongly associated with the City of Ottawa, found that it related to us well.
Located in the west end of Ottawa, Ontario at 2265 Robertson Road, Kichesippi beers are brewed with a lot of hard work and care. They have a wonderful team that is strongly dedicated to providing the best beer and service around.
Professional and Friendly - every one of the employees works very hard to make sure that customers get this experience every single time. Kichesippi prides itself on making balanced beers and insist on consistency and quality for each batch produced.
