Anne Heaton & Rose Polenzani on Lyrical Venus Radio 7/6! House concert 7/13!

Anne Heaton

Singer-Songwriter Anne Heaton

In the strange small world of coincidences, this Iowa girl’s first experience with both the Boston-based songwriters featured in this post was in Colorado!

Long-time readers know that I met Anne Heaton at The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival last year, and interviewed her on my show when she came through Iowa with Winterbloom, a group of four women songwriters joining forces for the holidays.

Rose Polenzani

Singer-Songwriter Rose Polenzani

I have yet to meet Rose Polenzani in person, but back when I lived in Boulder for a short while after college, my roommate came home from a concert with a CD that would become a fast favorite of ours to play in the house – Voices on the Verge.  Rose was one of four artists who had joined forces and were touring together under the name.  When I started my radio show a couple years ago I was re-introduced to the album and featured it one week, plus a new song by each of the four.

Anne contacted me again earlier this year when she was in the planning stages of a tour with Rose from the East Coast to the Midwest.  I offered her an interview and the option of a house concert on either side of a show up in Cedar Rapids and she took me up on both!

Then a few months later I found out that Winterbloom was in the running for the Lilith Fair Local Talent Search in Boston, and that Rose had joined Anne, Meg Hutchinson, Antje Duvekot and Natalia Zuckerman for the competition.  With that much star-power, it’s perhaps no surprise that they won!

Still, it’s no small feat, considering how many amazing musicians live in the Boston area. Winterbloom will be performing July 30th.  That sounds like a great show. It’s not looking good for me to make it to any Lilith Fair this year, but having two Lilith Fair performers in my living room is going to be pretty darn exciting!  (And heck, who am I kidding, I was stoked about them coming LONG before I even heard about the competition.)

Before their Lilith Fair performance though is Anne & Rose’s tour!  Check them out together in this video for Anne’s song, Where Your Scar Is.

Sweet, funny, talented, quirky, creative and smart are all words I would use to describe each of these women and their music.  If you’re ready to find out more about them, check out their websites for more info, music clips, tour dates and more.

The house concert with Anne & Rose at our place will be on July 13th, starting with an optional potluck at 6:30pm and the music getting started at 7:30.  Suggested donation is $10-$15 per person.  Email me to RSVP and ensure a seat, plus get directions! LyricalVenus [at] gmail [dot] com.

Get to know them a little better before they come by tuning in Tuesday from 9-10am Central for the Lyrical Venus Radio Hour!  KRUU-LP 100.1 here in town, online anywhere.  The 9am interview will be followed by more music.
