AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE- 2/25/09


The Folk Alliance has a peculiar tradition of moving the party up to the 17th, 18th and 19th floors for individual room showcases from about 10:30PM stretching into the wee hours of the night. The three floors of the Marriott turn into a dorm party with people knocking each other over, running from room to room, up and down the stairs and elevator, trying to make the gig they booked for every 30 minute time slot. Amid the confusion and laughable overzealousness, we stumbled on the sublime art of Ana Egge. Egge is a damn good guitar player, with strong and forceful chops, balanced by an ethereal voice which gets almost drowned out by her guitar rhythm – all part of the show. For her last tune she did a pitch-perfect slide rendition of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” on her National resonator.
