Anne Weiss and Julio Appling with Everyone Welcome Community Choir and Richey Bellinger
In a city like Portland that is filled with outstanding musicians of numerous genres, Anne Weiss stands tall when it comes to talent and songwriting. Her original blues are a standout. A tremendous vocalist, she is also a multi-instrumentalist who may take on a song behind a guitar, blues ukulele or piano at any given moment. And she is more than exceptional at all.-- Cascade Blues Association
