Folk singer and songwriter Ana Egge joins us for a performance of original songs with Danish backing band and folk music pioneers The Sentimentals. Egge will be performing songs from her new album White Tiger, her tenth album, a new batch of originals of articulate and affecting honesty and sensitivity that has earned praise such as “[Ana] can write and sing rings around her contemporaries” from USA Today.
Performing with her are the Sentimentals, with M.C. Hansen on guitar & vocals, Nikolaj Wolf on bass & vocals, and Jacob Chano on drums and vocals.
About the Artists
When Ana Egge got bit by the music bug as a teenager, she took matters into her own hands, building her own guitar, and moving to Austin, TX to observe, absorb and take musical risks. The striking depth and unusual maturity of her singing, playing, and songwriting got her noticed, and she recorded her first album, River Under the Road (1997) with the legendary western swing band, Asleep At The Wheel. The Austin Music Awards named her “Best Singer/Songwriter” and “Best Folk Artist.” Over the ensuing years and 8 subsequent CDs, Ana has made good on that promising debut. She has worked with producers Martin Terefe, Jason Mercer, Joel Plaskett, Steve Earle, and Stewart Lerman, and recorded full albums with The Stray Birds and The Sentimentals. Now, in 2018, she has released White Tiger, her tenth album, a new batch of Egge originals of such singularly articulate and affecting honesty and sensitivity, as to once again deserve USA Today’s accolade, “[Ana] can write and sing rings around” her contemporaries.
Danish backing band and folk music pioneers The Sentimentals have toured both America and Europe with American, Canadian, Danish and Swedish artists since 2004 playing 1000+ shows. Past tours include Jonathan Byrd, Ana Egge, Dana Cooper, Matt Harlan, Stephen Fearing, Anthony Da Costa and Slaid Cleaves.
The Sentimentals also collaborated on album releases with Matt Harlan (Bow and Be Simple, 2013), Jonathan Byrd (Mother Tongue, 2015) and Ana Egge (Say That Now, 2016).
The Sentimentals are M.C. Hansen on guitar & vocals, Nikolaj Wolf on bass & vocals and Jacob Chano on drums and vocals.
