Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Anne Harris
Chicago-based fiddle player and singer-songwriter Anne Harris has been crafting her unique sound for well over a decade, producing five indie studio records and playing countless performances in the US and abroad. Her collaborations, live and in-studio, span a large and diverse group of artists, including Otis Taylor, Shemkia Copland, Los Lobos, Living Colour, Cracker, Guy Davis, Walter Trout, Anders Osborne and occasional stints with hippie legends Jefferson Starship.
Anne’s new single ‘Over’ was written for her by Markus James, with whom she began collaborating with a few years ago. The collaboration of these two visionary Blues/American Roots artists has an intriguing sound that while rooted in acoustic blues, folk, and old time traditions, reaches far beyond to encompass their unique view of what happens when those early influences mingle without boundaries in a postmodern world of cultural cross pollination.
