Lst Minute Folk Concert featuring Ana Egge
Ana Egge will perform for the Last Minute Folk concert series in Topeka, Kansas on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 7:30pm.
Saskatchewan-born, Brooklyn-based folk troubadour Ana Egge isn't your run-of-the-mill alternative-country singer. Using unique production and rock-based chord progressions, Egge has made a name for herself as a Gillian Welch figure with a rocker attitude, which once prompted Lucinda Williams to call her "the Nina Simone of folk".
But Ana Egge is more country than that. Raised by hippies who grew wheat in North Dakota, the Brooklyn singersongwriter crafts homespun hymns on her sixth disc to sing with your bare feet on the dashboard. "Bully of New York" recounts a sad latenight conversation between Egge and a park ranger whose hours broke up his marriage (best part: She met him while hitchhiking). Egge's rootsy pedalsteel pop recalls singers like Shawn Colvin, but her sharply observed tales of the overlooked and underpaid feel utterly of the moment. Her newest album, bad Blood, was relaeaed August 23, 2011 via Ammal records. The 12-song set was produced by Steve Earle and recorded at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY.
