AnnaPaul and the Bearded Lady

BlogAnnaPaul I’m hoping that musicians get a bit of extra cash in their appearances at the various farmers’ markets around the city; they certainly add to our delight.

AnnaPaul and the Bearded Lady is a group that I’ve been around for some years, and I like them. They play “retro music” on interesting instruments. And Anna sings. And wears very cheerful outfits. Her clothes (and hair) cheer me up almost as much as the music.

They are perfect for the farmers market. They play at the center of the big long central aisle, along the prepared food tents and just up from the coffee cart:


Anna really does play a mean trombone, and people get transfixed by her singing:


Of course, there were a couple more musicians in the group — whose names, alas, I don’t know. The guitar player was good fun, and the tuba player made me laugh. I didn’t get a really good photo of him — there’s something inherently wonderful about a tuba player.




Even food couldn’t distract their listeners — or at least not for a moment or two.


And where’s the bearded lady? Well, Anna explained that she’s getting a bit elderly, so stayed home in her bed that morning. Schnauzers apparently need their sleep:-)

    Food and music, what a great combination! Add in a tiara for good measure….

      The tiara was definitely a bonus:-) I am, however, especially fond of the pink hair. When her hair is dark, she’s hard to recognize, at least on their website.
