Anna Peekstok



Anna Clemenger Peekstok has performed, toured, and recorded for more than two decades with the hurdy-gurdy, an ancient stringed instrument that uses a crank, wooden wheel, and keyboard to produce a haunting, eerie sound similar to that of a bagpipe. As one-half of the multi-instrumental duo Telynor, she was known for a signature blend of early and traditional European music performed with, according to one reviewer, “an energy and fire that one might associate with the blues or even rock.”

She is a founding member of the Over the Water Hurdy-Gurdy Association, has taught workshops at the group’s annual festival, and taken instruction there from some of the most celebrated hurdy-gurdy players in Europe. In addition to her arranging, performing, and producing work on Telynor’s four CDs, she has played on stage in the U.S. and Canada in a variety of venues, including coffeehouses, festivals, and concert halls, and has worked as a studio musician for both local and national recording artists.

She has degrees from the University of Virginia and the University of Washington, and lives in Seattle.
