New York City native Anne Price has often been compared to Joan Baez. Anne began performing when she was a student at Hunter College in the Bronx in the 1960s, and since then she has appeared at venues as close as the Peoples' Voice Cafe in New York City and as far away as the 15th century Black Swan Public House in York, England. 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 folk based 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.
From 2003 until the group disbanded in 2008, Anne Price was a member of MacDougal Street Rent Party
with Steve Suffet, Joel Landy, Eric Levine, and Gina Tlamsa. Eric Levine passed away the night of May 7-8, 2008.
Very Early Anne, a new CD of Anne's live performances
at Hunter College in the Bronx, 1965-1966, is also now available from CD Baby.
Released December 2012! Home Again, a digital compilation of songs from Anne's two cassette albums, Coming Home (1987) and My Time (1992), is now availble as a download album from CD Baby.
