Here's a little bit about this week's featured artist(s):
Annie Ford Band
You know Annie Ford as the ghostly fiddle player in your favorite country band. You know Annie Ford from your neighborhood farm stand, straw hat atop her head and pulled over her eyes, as she strums a worn-out acoustic. You know Annie Ford because of her penetrating singing voice, sharpened by the hardworking American decades. And it is Annie Ford’s song you hear when you fist open your eyes and it’s the one that fades away, just as you do.
Born in a log cabin and raised in rural Virginia, Ford grew up chopping wood and hanging clothes from the line. She took to the highway as a teenager, stopping first in New Orleans for three years before moving to the Emerald City to make root. But drop her in a room of instruments and she will make hay. A skilled fiddle, banjo, guitar, piano, washtub bass, ukulele, accordion and viola player, Ford is Americana incarnate, with vast experience in jazz, old-time, country blues, klezmer, Irish and Cajun music.=
Ford, who busked for 10 years at the historic Pike Place Market, has worked with standout artists including Gil Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show (playing on his first album and touring with Grammy-winner, Brandi Carlile). And while Ford also has collaborated with myriad Seattle standouts, including Whitney Mongé, Sera Cahoone, Baby Gramps, she also fronts her own jaunty project, The Annie Ford Band. The group infuses mist with the grit of the ground and the freshness of a new breeze into their heart-strung sound. Most recently, the group released its second record, At Night, a mixture of love potions, late evenings and bright mornings.
