About "From where I Sit" ...."Especially loved the last five! "Parker's Jetty" is gorgeous!
Thanks so much for the fine music!...."
- Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul & Mary)
"Possibly the high point of the festival was the closing of the Saturday night concert. Anne
Dodson, the honey-voiced singer from Maine, wrapped up a lovely set with her breathtaking
rendition of "Prayer"...,sung by several hundred voices,, all in majestic harmony. A perfect
moment. And the rain even waited till she had left the stage...."
- Jeremy Bloom, Metroland, Albany NY 7/93 reviewing the Old Songs Festival, Altamont NY
".... Anne Dodson (is) fast growing into a major folk talent....Her clear voice is sweet and sure
and her song-finding, from a Georgia Sea Island ditty to a wrenchingly homespun love song
from naturalist John Albright, is dead-on"
- Scott Alarik, Boston Globe, Boston MA
"....You gave 'em everything but a hot oil massage!..."
- Livingston Taylor (after Anne's opening act, Lebanon, NH)
"...when an artist as good as you are at spinning a song puts out an album it's a matter of honor
to get it on the program....."
- Tor Jonassen, WRVD, PA (re: From Where I Sit")

...."Anne Dodson took the U&I; Coffeehouse audience on a roller coaster ride from thoughtful
ballads to uproarious sing-along-novelty songs - and everyone wanted to get back in line for
more- a double encore performance!"....
- Ed Brown, U&I; Coffeehouse, Springfield MA

- WNHU, U. of New Haven, West Haven CT
"One change in old age, I find, is that music touches me more deeply and tears flow unbidden.
"All You Ask" had that effect on me. The words, the music, your voice - I was glad of the semi
dark. "From Where I Sit" - same result. I am 79 years old ; "age is but a way of marking
distance"; and truer words were never spoken, I thought as I wiped my eyes and sniffed -
pleasurably. I am still feeling euphoric from last night's concert."
- From an audience member , NH (4/95)
"Her voice can be anything from a lark to a cougar"....
