Terrific singer, amazing songwriter, and darned good guitar player, Ann Reed has had
devoted fans lining up at the box office for more than a quarter-century. She recently
released Telling Stories, a two-CD set celebrating those 25 years — years spent
writing songs, making music and delighting everyone withinearshot.If you had to
pinpoint when all this started, you could look back to when Ann was 12, growing up
in a suburb of Minneapolis. She borrowed her brother's guitar (the one he bought
with the $40 their grandmother had given him to buy a suit) and taught herself to
play. The die was cast. Since then, there have been 15 albums, countless concerts,
festival dates at world-renowned venues such as Bumbershoot and the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and television and radio appearances,
including Good Morning America, A Prairie Home Companion, and Minnesota Public Radio's Morning Show, where she occasionally
fills in as co-host.She has been honored with enough awards to fill a couple of walls and a bunch of shelf space. These accolades from
the likes of Billboard magazine, the National Association of Independent Recording Distributors, the Minnesota Music Academy, and
the Girl Scouts reflect a satisfying career by anyone's measure—made even more so since Ann combines her artistry with
community involvement. She donates about 25% of her time to the support of nonprofit groups that primarily benefit women and
children. It all boils down to this: Ann loves what she does. And the people who hear her music love what she does.
Ann Reed — with the rich alto, the smooth guitar licks, the great songs, the sly wit — is having the time of her life.
