When passing through the 2006 Downtown Holiday Market on Sunday afternoon, 17 December 2006, en route to the 2006 National Hanakkuh Menorah Lighting, I had the pleasure of listening to bluesy pop artist Flo Anito performing at 2006 Downtown Holiday Market (pdf) entertainment stage.
Classically trained in voice, piano, and 'cello, Flo Anito began her singer/songwriter career at age 16 when she got her hands on her first guitar. Already rewarded for her musicality with All-State recognition and roles in Summer-stock theatre, songwriting came naturally to this young talent who has quickly proved herself a prolific writer of thought provoking alternative folk/pop songs.
To learn more about Flo Anito visit her website or myspace. And, by all means, stop in at the 2006 Downtown Holiday Market between 12 noon and 2 pm today, 20 December, which is when Flo Anito returns for a repeat performance.
And while there, perhaps, pick up a few last minute holiday gift items and/or get to know some of the exhibitors. Many who also participate in the Eastern Market Festival which is amongst my documentary projects.
With its last day on Friday, 22 December, there are just three days left for the 2006 Downtown Holiday Market.
