The Earlville Opera House will host an evening with Americana/folk singer-songwriter Ana Egge on Friday February 10 at 8 PM in the EOH Arts Café. A prolific artist, Egge boasts seven albums, and has worked with musical legends such as Ron Sexsmith and Steve Earle. As for Egge herself, the power of her voice lies in its ability to be at once haunting and comforting, possessing the otherworldly vocal quality of Emmylou Harris and the dark sweetness of Aimee Mann with a smooth effortlessness all Egge’s own.
“We were always the outsiders,” says Egge of her early roots in a small North Dakota town of 50 people. “My folks loved the outdoors and eccentric people…. I grew up with all the time and space in the world.” Egge has since traded the openness of the American Plains for the untamable wilderness of New York City. She’s been around the horn of life’s experiences, having gotten married and become a mother, but that childhood spirit of freedom has matured on her latest album, Bright Shadow. Self-produced by Egge herself, Bright Shadow is a direct collaboration with acclaimed American roots trio, Yep Roc recording artists The Stray Birds – Maya De Vitry (fiddle, banjo, vocals), Charles Muench (upright bass, vocals), and Oliver Craven (mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar, vocals).
Ana Egge will perform in the EOH Arts Café on Friday February 10 at 8 PM. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 EOH members, and $10 students/youth under 18. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com. The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.
