Laura velvet and the bookhouse
Bulldog of the month: Singer Cally Nielsen — The BarkUMD senior Cally Nielsen has loved music her entire life and has been surrounded by her passion in all aspects. As a double major in music with a vocal emphasis, communication sciences disorders CSD , and a minor in psychology, one might wonder where she finds the time to practice this passion. I remember the first open mic that we did together. One of the many things Nielsen does is sing under the stage name Annie Blackbird in a local band called Laura Velvet and the Bookhouse Boys. We have the long black dresses, big hair, and silk gloves. The guys wear their suits too.
