Annie Rettic has played music since the age of 10, when she began playing the Viola. She has a solid foundation in classical music, and majored in vocal performance in college. It was there that she first heard Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez ,Judy Collins and other Folk singers and began to branch out. She built her first Dulcimer after hearing Joni's Blue album, and started experimenting and developing her own fiddling style after hearing Scarlet Rivera's violin on Dylan's album Desire. Her exposure to Irish and Bluegrass music led her to have a 5 string viola built in 1995. She continues to expose herself to new genres and to try to grow as a musician. In 2007, she moved to San Diego and began to write her own songs on Dulcimer, Ukelele, and Guitar. Her original songs embrace many styles including Country, Bluegrass, Folk and Blues. She's recorded with numerous talented musicians in the area, including Chelsea Flor, Dave Humphries, Eddy Jason Coven. In addition to her solo act, she currently plays in duos with Sweet Joyce Ann (Wild Older Women), and JT Moring (Neck and Neck).
