Well Trained HorsesMontgomery Village is pleased to announce that Annie Sampson and her band will take the stage at theDay on the Green Festival April 28 from 11:30am- 4:00pm. It will be a fun filled day full of music, art, dance and magic! This annual fundraising event benefits Well Trained Horses Rescue of Sebastopol, helping their worthy cause of rescuing, training and re-homing horses.

Annie Sampson's unique approach to song - whether a blues, a rock tune, a country & western ballad or a modem folk classic, was honed in her youth by singing in Bay Area church and school choirs. She then landed a principal part in the hit musical Hair at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. When the popular rock group STONEGROUND recruited her to become lead singer, she left the show and joined the group for a series of national and international tours. Buoyed by the popularity of their four Warner Brothers albums, Annie and Stoneground played the gamut of venues - from the Fillmore West and Winterland to Oxford University and the Olympia Theatre in Paris with stops at every major American and European city and campus in between.

A big talent like Annie's did not go unnoticed by her peers. She has recorded with Elvin Bishop, Taj Mahal, Buddy Miles, Maria Muldaur, Eddie Money and Country Joe MacDonald, as well as performed with Bonnie Raitt, Boz Scaggs, Otis Clay, Sammy Hagar, Commander Cody, Steve Miller, Nick Gravenites, Clarence Clemmons, Elvis Costello and the late Jerry Garcia - among others.

The Day on the Green Festivalshowcases CA Artists displaying and selling their creations, Green businesses and environmental organizations with services and products that promote a natural lifestyle in balance with the planet. Gallery Owner Dennis Calabi will be the Juror the Art Show.This year’s Lifetime Art Achievement Award will honor Sonoma County Artist Warren Arnold and his 50 plus year career as an Artist, Environmental Teacher and Advocate.Nathalie Tedrick will delight the crowd with a Belly Dancing performance and Ken Garr will dazzle guests with his Magic throughout the festival.
