"The truth of my own story lies on the road between inner city Chicago and the hollers of my eastern Kentucky home!"

Anndrena's oral history performances integrate folktales, song, dance and poetry. The performances are woven tightly and presented in a style which reflects both her eastern Kentucky coal field roots, and urban-Appalachian migration experience. She has been described as "...a Minnie Pearl with track shoes," and "...a rocket-powered raconteur" who delivers a performance which comes across "like a cannonball compared to some [other] performer's water pistol." Author and historian Studs Terkel calls her "...a national treasure."
