ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anne Price was born and raised in New York City and has been performing for over 30 years in coffeehouses, schools, libraries, political gatherings, and festivals. Her repertoire includes everything from traditional folk ballads to country songs, songs of the sea, cowboy songs, songs about work and the labor movement, and love songs. She sings many songs from contemporary songwriters, such as Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Si Kahn, and many others, and she writes a few fine songs of her own. Her voice is strong, rich, and expressive. She plays guitar and mountain dulcimer, or sings unaccompanied.

This CD is "the kind you take to a quiet nook (a shady place in a warm back yard fits nicely), lean back, close your eyes and revel in the deep pleasure of listening to fine songs presented by an outstanding singer with an extraordinarily lovely voice." - Faith Petric August, 2009

Excellent American Folk music
The accomplished folk singer, Anne Price, returns with her 4th CD, “A Few More Miles to Go,” yet another wonderful collection of (mainly) traditional – if lesser exposed, potent folk songs. Opening with a cover of the late, under-appreciated contemporary folk stylist, Kate Wolf (an influence on Nanci Griffith), “The Trumpet Vine” serves as a terrific introduction for a varied set that reveals folk music’s rich and evolving traditions. As a veteran and leading exponent of NYC’s storied folk heritage, Price’s mastery of the music’s many styles is unquestioned. As such, her take on the mountain ballad-like “Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key,” a Woodie Guthrie tune originating from the seminal 1998 album by Billy Bragg & Wilco (“Mermaid Avenue”) is true and affecting, as is her a cappella rendition of the English ballad, “The Keys of Canterbury.” Elsewhere, Price’s mid-range voice (not unlike Griffith’s instrument these days) is the perfect vehicle for songs of homespun humor such as “Chocolate,” children’s sing-alongs songs like “Yucky Bugs,” or praises to nature’s wonder with “Black Waters.” But nowhere is the singer better represented than on her Iris DeMent-like rendition of the playful Janis Ian tune, “My Autobiography.” Without a doubt, Anne Price’s excellent CD, “A Few More Miles to Go,” is a fine addition to the American folk music library; the pairing of a revered songbook with a treasured performer.
