About Anaïs Mitchell

In tandem with an earnest, somewhat Dolly Parton-esque vocal delivery, Vermont singer/songwriter Anaïs Mitchell emerged with an alternately confessional and character-driven alt-folk in the early 2000s. Following albums including her self-released debut (2002's The Song They Sang...When Rome Fell) and her first record for influence Ani DiFranco's label (2007's The Brightness), Mitchell's landmark fourth LP, Hadestown, saw release in 2010. A staged version of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice set in America during an economic depression, it was reworked for Broadway, where it opened in 2019. Hadestown the musical went on to win eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. In 2020, she joined the indie folk supergroup Bonny Light Horseman, and in 2022 she released her eponymous eighth studio LP.
