With an unmistakably unique and evocative voice often described as an “enchanting cross between the girly timbre of Dolly Parton and the blues-filled prowess of Aretha Franklin” plus a knack for writing undeniably catchy melodies, Ann has been gaining attention worldwide.
Her voice alone turns heads, but there are many more layers that captivate the crowd throughout the entirety of every show of this seasoned artist, whose international touring schedule will be bringing her to the NSW Central West for the first time.
“The woman who has been in charge of the last three tours I’ve done in Australia recently moved to Canowindra, and she has organised for me to play a show in her new hometown,” says Ann on her upcoming visit.
“Travelling Australia is always an adventure. Lots of kangaroos to watch out for, and STAY LEFT! Coming out to Canowindra will be the closest I will have ever gotten to date to the outback, so I will be that person snapping pictures for Instagram!” said Ann. Ann Vriend is an award-winning performer and songwriter, having won the “She’s The One” performance contest at the Ottawa Blues Fest, as well as the 2017 Cobalt Music Prize at the Maple Blues Awards for her gospel style ballad “All That I Can,” to name a few accolades.
Ann will be in Canowindra for a solo show on Thursday 15th March at The Old Vic Inn. Bookings are essential as tickets are limited. Tickets are $30 per person and food will be available on the night however it must be pre-ordered. The doors and the bar will open at 6pm for the 7.30pm show. Call 6344 1099 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
