Anaïs Mitchell featuring Bonny Light Horseman
February 28@7:30 pm-9:30 pm$35 – $55
Dubbed by NPR as “one of the greatest songwriters of her generation,” Anaïs Mitchell is the Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning creator of the Broadway musical Hadestown (her production won 8 awards at the 2019 Tony’s, including Best Musical). Mitchell comes from the world of narrative folksong, poetry and balladry, with recordings that include the original studio album of Hadestown and Young Man in America, along with reinterpretations of traditional music, including Child Ballads and Bonny Light Horseman. She has headlined global tours and performed with Bon Iver, Josh Ritter, Punch Brothers, and more. The common thread in Mitchell’s work is she’s as interested in the world around her as the one inside her.
Mitchell will be joined by Bonny Light Horseman, a folk supergroup trio comprised of Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson (best known for his project Fruit Bats and stints with The Shins), and Josh Kaufman (instrumentalist and producer known for his work with Hiss Golden Messenger, Bob Weir, and The National). Together, they will perform selections from their two-time Grammy-nominated album of traditional folk songs with a contemporary twist before Anaïs take to the stage to share songs from her forthcoming album as well as from her catalog of audience favorites.
