ANNA WELLS – Friday 12th July
The Maypole is delighted to Welcome Back Anna Wells.
Anna Wells has a terrific voice, is a very talented key boards player and songwriter of no mean repute and an all around lovely person to have perform. You will hear her perform some of her own material and wide variety of covers guranteed to get the party going. Performing songs from the mid-twentieth century such as Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline to current mainstream popular music of Shakira and Ed Sheeran, Anna has defined herself as a versatile performer in many different capacities.
Having the experience of performing contrasting repertoires, Anna has established a strong and confident profile as a performer and a musician, with the ability to alter her programmes/setlists to cater for her audiences and interact with them, effectively.
Her infectious joy at playing and singing for a crowd gets your feet tapping and you wanting to join in. Which is why we all love music.
This Lady is so talented, don’t miss her amazing show.
It is also landlord Vince’s Birthday, so come along and help him celebrate.
