Ann Hampton Callaway
One of the finest singer-songwriters of our generation, Ann Hampton Callaway inspired The New York Times to write, “For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.” This statuesque performer dazzles music lovers and her talents have made her equally at home in jazz and pop as well as on stage, in the recording studio, on TV and in film. She is best known for starring in Broadway’s hit musical Swing! and for writing and singing the theme to the internationally successful television series, The Nanny. A devotee of the Great American Songbook– to which she brings fresh and original interpretations – her spontaneity, soulful charisma and spectacular voice will wow audiences this summer at Sand Harbor!
