Anne Hills

 


Anne Hills is one of the most beloved voices of the contemporary folk music scene, receiving awards and recognition for her live performances, her unique solo and collaborative recording projects, and her overall artistry and benefit work. Her song “Follow That Road” was the title cut of the Martha’s Vineyard Songwriter Retreat and has been a certified folk classic since the late 1990s. Whether she is singing her own songs, the words of six-year-old Opal Whiteley, or her song settings of the Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley; accompanied with her guitar, banjo, or simply a Tibetan bell, she puts her whole heart and soul into the moment.

As a singer, actress, writer, and musician Anne Hills has built a strong and broad reputation. She has twice won the Pennsylvania Partner's in the Arts Project Stream grant award (in 2007 for her premiere of An Evening of James Whitcomb Riley and in 2005 for her premiere of The Heartsongs of Opal Whiteley). She was also the recipient of the WFMA 2002 Kate Wolf Memorial Award, and The Kerrville Music Foundation's Outstanding Female Vocalist of the Year Award (1997). And the list goes on. But she has also managed to dedicated herself to issues of social justice as a practicing and award-winning social worker. She brings a sense of community to her music with her many well known collaborators, including Tom Paxton, Cindy Mangsen, Priscilla Herdman and John Hartford.
