Portland Oregon based Anne Weiss has been performing and touring nationally for over 20 years, with 4 CD’s to her credit and a fifth in the works. Known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, poetic lyrics, and humorous stage presence, Weiss has appeared with everyone from Dar Williams to Taj Mahal, appears on recordings with The Indigo Girls, Greg Brown, Shawn Colvin and others, and has performed and taught music workshops at festivals from Vermont to Alaska. One of the liveliest acoustic performers, she has been referred to as a “wordsmith” (NPR), a “bluesoulfunkguitargoddess” (Willamette Week) and just plain “outstanding” (RadioIndy). She has been compared to a cross between Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, and Joni Mitchell.
“Anne’s songs draw on the richness of her life - daughter of an opera singer, classical pianist turned blues guitarist, NY street gang member, mountaineer, social activist here and abroad, and writer/performer of songs that will stay with you forever. This is a must see performance." -Seattle Weekly
