More about Annie…
As a songwriter… Annie Wenz’s music has been heard…
On ESPN, as Independent Film scores, and from major league ballparks & Harley dealerships around the US, to TV/theater productions around the world!
As a touring performer… Annie has been described as…
”a Poet & Human Rights Activist on the road, blending in with the people of different lands from South America to Ireland. Annie has stayed a spell, embraced the people, understood their plight, shared songs and enriched herself as much as her new found friends”…
After many years of loving a career as Nursing Supervisor at a Psychiatric Crisis Shelter in Massachusetts, (while doing music for her patients and on the side!), Annie’s music career called her to the road… (though she is still an RN)
Now Annie’s muse-a rama leads her from brilliantly poetic watercolor story songs about life & love & backpacking through jungles & villages around the globe… to vivid gritty & tattered hard ridden road songs penned during long distant blue highway trips on the 2 wheels of her motorcycle & 4 wheels of her camper as settles & travels & shares her music…
And Rod:
Rod MacDonald (born August 17, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter, novelist, and educator.[1] He was a “big part of the 1980s folk revival in Greenwich Village clubs”,[2] performing at the Speakeasy, The Bottom Line, Folk City, and the “Songwriter’s Exchange” at the Cornelia Street Cafe. He co-founded the Greenwich Village Folk Festival, now a non-profit, and is still the President and co-producer of its events. He is perhaps best known for his songs “American Jerusalem”, about the “contrast between the rich and the poor in Manhattan” (Sing Out!), “A Sailor’s Prayer”, “Coming of the Snow”, “Every Living Thing”, and “My Neighbors in Delray”, a description of the September 11 hijackers’ last days in Delray Beach, Florida, where MacDonald has lived since 1995. His songs have been covered by Dave Van Ronk, Shawn Colvin, Four Bitchin’ Babes, Jonathan Edwards, Garnet Rogers, Joe Jencks, and others. His 1985 recording “White Buffalo” is dedicated to Lakota Sioux ceremonial chief and healer Frank Fools Crow, whom he visited in 1981 and 1985, and who appears with MacDonald in the cover photograph. Since 1995 MacDonald has lived in south Florida, where his cd, “Later that Night” was named “Best Local Cd of 2014” by The Palm Beach Post[3] and reached the top ten in national roots music charts. His first novel, The Open Mike, about a young man in the open mike scene of Greenwich Village, was published on December 5, 2014, by Archway Publishing.[4] On December 10, 2020, MacDonald released his 13th solo recording, Boulevard, on Blue Flute Music.
