“We had a great evening with these talented musicians. Great stories and well written and well chosen songs. Anne E. is a great communicator and captivated the audience with her personality. Some guests said it is the best concert we have had. A good time was had by all. We highly recommend this well organized and most gifted performer. ”

For a solo acoustic performance, the minimum fee is $750 plus overnight at your home, or hotel accommodations. Anne E's Trio or Full Band may also be available to perform, let's discuss.
