It’s Women’s Equality Day, the day Congress ratified the 19th amendment.
On Sunday, Sept. 19, the Summit County Historical Society is hosting the “Sweet Sounds of Equality” Concert on the grounds of the John Brown House at 514 Diagonal Road in Akron. The program is sponsored in part by the Ohio Arts Council.
Singer/Songwriter/Akron Fan Favorite Anne E. DeChant will headline the concert.
For those who have missed Anne E.’s high powered, kickin’ outdoor concerts, here’s your chance to celebrate equality AND hear the woman who puts her own spin on equality and feminism.
Anne E. is a five-time winner of Cleveland’s Singer-Songwriter of the year and was also a finalist at the 2020 Kerrville Songwriter Competition. She has performed with Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Don Henry and Travis Meadows.
She’s performed at many venues from Bluebird Café, The Bitter End to the Clinton White House. But few venues can compare to the historical importance of the John Brown House, a site on the National Park Service’s Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.
Residing in Nashville, Anne E. has nine studio album releases. Anne E. released her first 'best of' record, "Every Little Everything" in 2020, fan funded and Nashville produced by Mike Severs. Her 2017 fan-funded release, “The Sun Coming In”, climbed to #6 on the Roots Music Report’s national chart, and its first single “Sunday Morning Drive,” to #1.
And that’s why, friends, Anne E. is coming to town, to celebrate Equality and Freedom.
