Anne Price was born and raised in New York City and has been performing since 1965 in coffee houses, 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 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.
