Annie Patterson Recordings

Did you know Annie sings jazz as well as folk? Order Annie's brand new jazz recording Return to Planet Swing (2017) now - from the swing trio Girls from Mars that Annie has sung with for over 30 years.

Annie's folk CDs:

Shine (2017) is a 30-track collection of lively, fun, easy songs about peace, diversity, faith, gratitude, and building community. Annie produced the CD and sings on almost every track, accompanied by a wide variety of string and percussion instruments. Created by a Mennonite/Brethren Church program that designs religious education programs working for small children.

Mountain Side (2012) was produced by Jim Henry and includes vocals by The Nields, Tracy Grammer, Mary Witt, & Claire Taylor.  Contains 13 of Annie's favorite songs out of Rise Up Singing including songs by Jean Ritchie, Si Kahn, Pete Seeger, and Michael Smith. (If you prefer to order mp3 files: Mountain Side downloads from CDBaby)

Meet Me by the Moonlight (2005) includes banjo tunes, 2 of Annie's own compositions, a stunning a capella rendition of "Bonnie Light Horseman" and a round, The Creation of Eä, with lyrics from a poem by Ursula LeGuin.  (Meet Me by the Moonlight downloads from CDBaby.)

Deep Roots (1995). Thousands of Annie's fans have loved this first recording of Annie's for its simplicity and beauty. It features Annie singing alone and accompanying herself on banjo and guitar. (Sometimes "less" is much more!) Originally issued on cassette, "Deep Roots" was recently been remasstered and re-issued on CD!
