Wednesday, September 20 – 8pm – The Merrow in San Diego

 Americana/Vegan singer/songwriter Annette Conlon,having just completed her second “Compassionette” South-East Tour, performs at “Together With Texas” Hurricane Harvey Relief Benefit at The Merrow1271 University Ave., Wednesday, September 20. Set Time for Annette Conlon: 8:00pm-8:40pm. Requested Door Donation: $10. Info:(619) 299-7372 or http://themerrow.com/. All proceeds donated to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund. Also performing: The High Rolling Loners; Jesse Lee (of The Paragraphs); and The Anomaly.

While on her Compassionette Tour, which wound through North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee, Conlon performed songs from her critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, along with songs from her new album scheduled for release in 2018. “Part sweet, part dark, the songs show a view deep into Annette Conlon’s soul. Her songs about compassion, social consciousness, human interaction, and animals are intended to make people think and to make a social statement.” (Ed Simon, The Boise Beat) Says Conlon, “I am excited to share my love for animals and veganism, through music, with folks across the country and to show them how easy it is to live more compassionately, from what you eat, to what you wear, while helping folks make the connection that our animal friends are not food.” This musical activism helps raise awareness of animal cruelty and factory farming and her tour helps elevate this awareness with sponsors in fashion and food.

Husband Doug Conlon accompanied Annette on the tour, playing mandolin, banjo, and guitar, while providing background harmonies. Annette will be playing her Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor guitar and her Seagull Artist Studio Concert Hall guitar. Both instruments are made from sustainably-sourced woods and found tone-woods, and the Bedell is 100% vegan, containing no animal products. (Annette is endorsed by both Bedell and Seagull).

About…Annette Conlon 

The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in her Conlon’s debut, and Country Music People ranked Life, Death, and the Spaces Between #3 on a ‘Best Albums of 2015’ list, praising Annette Conlon as “a major talent” who “created a moving, intimate, magical melodic country trip.” Currently working with three-time Grammy winner Alf Rodenas on her second album, Conlon promises a “sweeter, happier, Ameri-Folk/Rock” effort that “delves ever deeper into my human heart.”
