Anaïs Mitchell is a Vermont and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who comes from the world of narrative folksong, poetry and balladry. Among her recorded works are 'Child Ballads' with Jefferson Hamer, 'Young Man in America', and 'Hadestown', the latter of which she expanded into a musical. 'Hadestown' opened at London’s National Theatre in November 2018 before transferring to Broadway where it will open in April 2019. Mitchell has headlined shows around the world, and opened tours with Bon Iver, Josh Ritter, Punch Brothers and Patty Griffin. She is the recipient of a BBC Radio Two Folk Award, and the Folk Alliance International Spirit of Folk Award. If there's a common thread in Mitchell's work it's that she's as interested in the world around her as the one inside her.
“Ms Mitchell’s songs address contemporary angst with uncanny vision….a formidable songwriting talent” ... New York Times
“The most engaging, and in some ways, most original artist working in the field of new American folk music” ... Independent on Sunday
“Mitchell is a skilled storyteller...and her delivery gives an emotional complexity that welcomes and even demands repeated listens.” ... Pitchfork
“A charismatic live performer with an idiosyncratic style, and a songwriter of exceptional imagination and perception” The Guardian
