You are cordially invited to hear Anne HIlls at Carolyn's Cottonwood House Concert on Saturday afternoon, November 18.
I can say, definitively, that Anne Hills is my favorite female folk/singer/songwriter! I first heard Anne at the Kerrville Folk Festival (I'm pretty sure it was in the 1980's), when Bob Gibson introduced her to Kerrville. I was immediately hooked! For the past 30+ years of my being involved in the folk music world, Anne remains, in my mind, one of the few all time greats. As another one of my folk/songwriter hero's stated:
“Anne Hills is such an exquisite singer that it’s understandable that people might be swept up in the pure beauty of her voice and thereby overlook her writing. That would be a mistake. For me, Anne’s writing, in songs like ‘Follow That Road’ and many others, is as direct, melodic and deep as any work being done today. She is quite simply one of my absolute favorite songwriters.”
— Tom Paxton
Anne has recorded and toured with many of the folk singer/songwriter giants, including Tom Paxton, Bob Gibson, Cindy Mangsen, Steve Gillette and Michael Smith. Her solo performances take us on an amazing journey to a place that we may not realized existed ---- sometimes beautiful, and sometimes tragic, sometimes loving --- but always meaningful.

I hope you will join me in welcoming Anne for another (much too infrequent) Texas performance. Please arrive between 2:20 and 2:40 for visiting, and light snacks. The music begins at 3:00. All guests are invited to stay for a song circle after the concert, so bring your instruments and voices.
A minimum donation of $18 (cash please) will be collected at the door. All money goes to the musician. Space is limited so it is necessary that you email CarolynsCottonwoodConcerts@aol.com to make reservations. Then, a confirmation and detailed directions will be emailed to you.
