Serbian blues/rock guitarist talks to Guitar Shop TV backstage at the Iridium in NYC
Belgrade-born Ana Popovic was introduced to the blues at an early age by her father. Taking up the guitar as a teenager, Ana began performing on the European blues circuit in the mid 1990s. By decade’s end, she’d recorded an album with her band Hush and relocated to Amsterdam to study at the music conservatory.
However life had other plans for Ana. Suddenly finding herself to be an in-demand live act across the continent, Ana dropped out of the conservatory and wound up in Memphis where she recorded her sensational solo debut Hush! Since then, she has continued to be a mainstay on the European, American, and international blues scene.
Guitar Shop TV’s Brian Lippey recently caught up with Ana backstage at the Iridium in New York City. Check out our exclusive interview with the formidably talented singer/guitarist.
