Anne Buckle


Bio

When the Carter Family sang about a melancholy flower in the wildwood nearly one hundred years ago, little did they know that three generations later, another Carter songstress would personify its story. As a songwriter, Anne Buckle blends poignant lyrical themes with haunting melodies that channel her Appalachian roots. But who is she? A Harvard graduate, fluent in French; former diplomat at the US Embassy in Paris; classically trained violinist with a master’s degree in arts advocacy; self-taught on nearly a dozen other musical instruments; founder of a non-profit called 3 Chords that teaches refugee youth to write songs; a Georgia native who now calls Music City home, who spent three years creating the Tennessee Promise program with Governor Haslam. But, this daughter of two school teachers left that life behind, instead choosing to chase the dreams of her heart down an uncertain path - one full of doubt and heartbreak, freedom and possibility. In 2017, she started releasing new music under the name WILDWOOD, which has been called "a juxtaposition of haunting and hopeful" and "a refreshing take on a legendary family" by the Nashville Music Guide. Nashville's own Bluebird Cafe has described her as "honest, vulnerable, and completely original. Haunting and beyond category." She’s performed in festivals including Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Muletown Music Fest, and CMA Music Fest to name a few. She is signed to the indie label, South x Sea, which is administered by Kobalt. As a fiddle player, Anne has shared the stage with Charlie Daniels, toured with Augustana, and opened for the Dixie Chicks on their DCX MMXVI World Tour. When she isn't writing or performing music, traveling or working with refugees, Anne is a museum educator and teaching artist at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, helping K-12 students learn about country music history and songwriting. She also teaches private violin, piano, and guitar lessons and is a freelance writer, authoring the blog Life According to Annie B.
