  • Visit website
  • Details: A Little Street Music concludes September 4 with Annie Sampson & Her Band. The love of music pervades every note Annie Sampson sings. The youngest of 12 children, her early years were spent in the fertile musical climate of rural Louisiana surrounded by a family of teachers and ministers who sang together as a way of life. Her special gifts were first recognized at age five when she won a church talent show. Annie has continued to electrify, move and delight audiences ever since. Annie Sampson’s unique approach to song – whether a blues, a rock tune, a country & western ballad or a modem folk classic, was honed in her youth by singing in Bay Area church and school choirs. She then landed a principal part in the hit musical Hair at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. When the popular rock group Stoneground recruited her to become lead singer, she left the show and joined the group for a series of national and international tours. Buoyed by the popularity of their four Warner Brothers albums, Annie and Stoneground played the gamut of venues – from the Fillmore West and Winterland to Oxford University and the Olympia Theatre in Paris with stops at every major American and European city and campus in between. The events are free. The Tasting Room opens at 11am, with music from 3pm to 6pm. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic; all of our Tasting Room exclusives are available for purchase by the glass or bottle. Outside alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Enjoy the summer – Taft Street Style.

By chance, they become involved in the action causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching.
