Chicago-based singer-songwriter and fiddle player Anne Harris has been crafting her unique sound for over ten years and “continues to raise the bar on a soulful blend of folk, pop, and roots rock on record, while her deft instrumental abilities continue to resonate in concert.” [Illinois Entertainer] In addition to her own projects, Harris is currently touring internationally with multi-Blues Award winner, Otis Taylor, where her fiddle and presence have become a signature element in his band's innovative trance-blues offering.
"The Venue DI surpassed all of my expectations. The power, warmth, and nuances of my instrument are enhanced in such an organic, earthy way. It feels like my acoustic sound on super vitamins!"
“Once you have witnessed Anne Harris play the violin, you aren’t likely to forget the experience any time soon. It’s not just the wondrous music she makes drawing her bow across the strings, it’s also the way the spirit of the music emanates from her physically. She inhabits the music, or maybe the music inhabits her, but it is impossible not to be drawn under her spell.” [BluesWax]
Full testimonial on LR Baggs products:
"I've been a fan of LR Baggs' products for the last ten years. I've been using the Para DI and the violin pickup and it's been a perfect marriage in all of my performance scenarios. When I performed at NAMM in 2009 I heard about the Venue DI and was anxious to give it a try. I brought one to the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival and it was a perfect test as we played in three very different settings that weekend: intimate indoor acoustic, outdoor main stage, and a convention hall. I've been using the Venue ever since.
The Venue DI surpassed all of my expectations. The power, warmth, and nuances of my instrument are enhanced in such an organic, earthy way. It feels like my acoustic sound on super vitamins! A totally natural high. The EQ and sound controls are phenomenal, the integral tuner is really convenient, and the solo boost is a great addition...all the juice you need at the tap of a button. The Venue goes far beyond simply being a great DI. I'm a huge fan of LR Baggs and the Venue DI is now a part of my repertoire.
Thanks for your dedication to excellence."
