    Sorry @Eligius1976 , I believe she is married, and has three children. LOL
    I also love her voice, a lot, and enjoy her playing.
    In 2019 she and the band played in Istanbul, but sadly, I was unable to make the show.

    A few years ago she played at our local blues fest. I had played with one of the opening local bands, so I was hanging around back stage with other friends/musos. As they were getting her gear ready one of the guys from the blues fest committee asked me if I had a guitar stand Ana could use. Of course I said "sure". So that's as close as I ever got to her. :D

    I saw an outstanding gig by her in Buffalo, NY 2-3 years ago. She's the real deal. Strats, Tube Screamer, BFSR.

    BTW: Per a Serbian acquaintance, Popovic is pronounced Pop-o-vitch

    I first saw her on the Experience Hendrix tour, then again at our local blues fest. She is very talented with a Stratocaster. I had tickets to see her at a small local venue last year, but the show was cancelled due to covid. That was a serious bummer.:(

    She is a great catch!

    Youtube is your friend. She's been entertaining us there for years.

    Something super hot about a lady who plays a Stratocaster and plays it well. Maybe now you guys can understand my love for Mami Sasazaki.

    I am always a little baffled by players that have free floating right hands. I watched a couple of her vids a few weeks ago and tried to mimic her right hand action.
    Shockingly, it wasn't as slopy as I thought it might be, but it just felt strange.

    It makes for a very interesting attack. I'm wondering if that's what I'm noticing when I head Susan Tedeschi play. First thing I noticed about her, after her voice, was her distinct phrasing on her own composition, but I'll have to watch some vids of her closely specifically watching her right hand.

    She's hot in more ways than one. I saw her in Bremerton, Washington a few years ago. I believe she lives in California somewhere now.
