Anna Popovich, described by Bruce Springsteen as “a helluva guitarist,” is coming to Bentonville.
She is touring in support of her upcoming album ‘Power’ which is released on May 2nd via ArtisteXclusive Records. This album is a powerful and personal story that lives through faith, determination, and tenacity. In the fall of 2020, as the world grappled with the novel coronavirus, Popovich was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had lost her mother to the same disease three years earlier, and everything was questionable, including whether she would continue with her music. With encouragement from her bassist and her 14 rounds of chemotherapy, Popovich is writing her new album and on the road.
Popovich will perform on January 29th at 7pm at the Meteor Guitar Gallery at 128 West Central Street in Bentonville. Tickets are $20-$35 on stubs.net. Search for “Ana Popovich Live at the Meteor”.
