Saturday, September 22 −4:00pm • Beulah Brinton House

Anne Hills ~ “One of the most glorious voices in all of contemporary folk music.”

– The Chicago Tribune

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 Martha’s 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 won’t want to miss a chance to hear her songs and stories in person.

Suggested donation $20.

Workshop: “Healthy Singing” is at 1:30p.m.
The $35 cost includes both workshop & concert. Open to students of all levels. Workshop materials will be provided.
