This Sunday, Jan. 15, kindie powerhouse Little Miss Ann will be holding a release party for her third CD, Walk With Me, and ChiIL Mama will be there with video camera in hand!
Don't let her diminutive stature fool you. ChiIL Mama's so excited to be a media sponsor for her CD release party this Sunday at noon as part of Beat Kitchen's Concerts for Kids. Three is a magic number...like on the count of 3...3 strikes...3 wishes. and Walk With Me marks three releases for windy kindie fav and prolific performer, Miss Ann. This album's sure to be magic as well. You can download the title track, Walk With Me right here for FREE!
You can also win four free tickets to Little Miss Ann's CD release release party this Sunday at noon at Beat Kitchen!
We love her multicultural take on folk music, and her energetic performances. She's a regular at summer fests and Chicago venues like Beat Kitchen and Old Town School, and her beloved live shows are engaging for tots and parents alike.
We can't wait to review Walk With Me and give away a few copies to our readers. Later today, we'll have never before seen, original, live footage of some of the new tunes for you. We have loads of amazing clips from Miss Ann's last Beat Kitchen appearance with renowned NY kindie rocker, Suzy Shelton, who also sings on Walk With Me.
We just ran into Little Miss Ann at the grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting for Old Town School of Folk Music's gorgeous new building. It's no surprise. Her roots run deep with the school, where she taught Wiggleworms Classes and got her performing/recording start.
Miss Ann's also a Chi-Town Mom, with a tween daughter, who makes cameos on her releases, and sometimes even sings back up for shows. She's also married to Patrick, who's the drummer in her band. It's a family affair, and this family rocks the scene for the waaaay underagers.
Walk With Me will be available soon on CD Baby and itunes. The official release is actually Sunday, the Jan. 15. Walk With Me is so hot off the presses, the CD's are still enroute. You can download it already at Band Camp and get an ear full of all the tracks there.
