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, 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 opened in April.
Anais 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 her work it’s that she’s as interested in the world around her as the one inside her. As the New York Times wrote, “Ms Mitchell’s songs address contemporary angst with uncanny vision… a formidable songwriting talent”.
