Anne Hills and David Roth at Cellar Stage™ Timonium
Anne Hills is one of the most beloved voices of the contemporary folk music scene, receiving awards and recognition for her live performances, her unique solo and collaborative recording projects, and her overall artistry and benefit work. Her song Follow That Road was the title cut of the Marthas Vineyard Songwriter Retreat and has been a certified folk classic since the late 1990s. Whether she is singing her own songs, the words of six-year-old Opal Whiteley, or her song settings of the Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley; accompanied with her guitar, banjo, or simply a Tibetan bell, she puts her whole heart and soul into the moment. You wont want to miss a chance to hear her songs and stories in person. She tours extensively, winning over audiences with her warm, lively and humorous performances. (And if you love her writing, be sure to check out her Haiku a Day shared via her Facebook page!) The AllMusic Guide says, A stunning soprano tone has made Anne Hills one of contemporary musics premiere vocalists Her knack for writing heartfelt songs [has] brought her to the upper echelon of her craft. and Tom Paxton says, Anne Hills is such an exquisite singer that its understandable that people might be swept up in the pure beauty of her voice and thereby overlook her writing. That would be a mistake. For me, Annes writing, in songs like Follow That Road and many others, is as direct, melodic and deep as any work being done today. She is quite simply one of my absolute favorite songwriters.
