POLAND – Maine native Anni Clark was recently nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year by the Texas Music Awards based on her newest CD, “Anni Clark LIVE.” At 7 p.m. Monday, June 23, she will perform at All Souls Chapel as part of the Poland Spring Preservation Society’s Summer Concert Series.

Recorded at the rustic and intimate Deertrees Theatre in Harrison, “Anni Clark LIVE” showcases 15 of her most requested songs.

With more than two decades of full-time touring and seven successful recordings under her belt, Clark’s passion for communication through music continues to build a widespread and loyal audience. She supports her strong melodic vocals with both six- and 12-string guitars to create performances that blend “folk, pop and blues with a dash of Maine hue-mah.”

In 2003, Clark won both Female Artist of the Year and Folk Artist of the Year in Jam Music Magazine’s Readers’ Pix Awards. With glowing reviews and steady airplay to support her, she toured nonstop with the release of her “Big Water” CD.

Baltimore’s Dirty Linen Magazine wrote “…she leads the way to a metaphorical exploration of the natural world. ‘Forever Free’ is one of the strongest songs written about the events of 9/11.”
