Meet Hattie

Hattie McCall Davies

Bookings Specialist

Hi I’m Hattie, and I’m thrilled to be coming on board with Encore as Bookings Specialist! I’m a freelance cellist, piper, and writer and nothing makes me happier than the dissemination and promotion of music – so this seems like the place to be!

I’m a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music and currently pursuing a distance masters in Traditional Music (I’m a folky at heart) through the University of Sheffield. My musical experiences along the way have brought me into contact with both the weird and the wonderful – I wouldn’t trade this profession for a thing – and most importantly taught me the value that the creation of music and the promotion of young talent has within our society. And so actively enabling people to book live musicians through Encore is something that I look forward to with much love and enthusiasm!

Away from music I have three cats and a surprisingly speedy tortoise. When I’m not chasing said tortoise down, I can usually be found curled up with a book, or trying to perfect my knitting… a long process…

My playlist at the moment features the glorious Rachmaninov Vespers but when I’m feeling a little less serious my young brothers introduced me to the movie Home which has a seriously fab soundtrack!
