His most recent solo album, “Secret Handshake” was released in 2012. Anthony has played the Wyldwood twice before, once opening for Storyhill and again as part of the trio: Elliott, Rose, da Costa. This is his first show with us as a headliner and he is bringing a band to back him up, as well as fellow musician Dan Grissom to perform an opening set. Dan Grissom is the lead of a musical troupe called some say Leland. Dan writes evocative lyrics, sings, plays guitar and banjo. Come out for another great show and another great season at the Wyldwood.
