Also appearing the same night, Anne Weiss performs music which combines contemporary folk, blues, funk, gospel with smatterings of classical phrasing and Latin rhythm. Weiss is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, and striking stage presence. Her lyrics are poetic, political, humorous, sensual, and full of characters and stories. Besides having four albums out, Weiss is an award-winning poet. She received the Allen Ginsberg Award for poems in her book called “Making Paper From Leaves.” More info at AnneWeiss.com
