ORANGE CITY – Ann Zimmerman will take the stage at Old Factory Friday, July 18 at 7:30pm.

Folk musician from Kansas, Zimmerman sings of life on the prairie. She has won the People’s Choice award in the Wildflower! Festival singer-songwriter contest near Dallas, and was nominated for a “grass-roots grammy” in the Just Plain Folks national song contest. Her song “Meadowlark,” was a finalist in the folk/ Americana category of The Great American Song contest. She sings about the joy, sorrow, grandeur and silliness of life, combining rich vocals, piano and guitar.

She has performed in the Midwest and Great Plains, plus New York, Seattle, Boston and Alaska, sharing stages with John McCutcheon, Connie Dover, Steve Gillette and Wendell Berry. She comes to Orange City following a week-long tour of Duluth, Austin and Stillwater, MN and Sioux Falls SD.

Zimmerman is a professional mediator, runs a horse-boarding stable with her husband, formerly taught elementary school and is a past president of a Kansas environmental group.
