Nearly a decade on from its original album version, Anaïs Mitchell’s folk opera Hadestown (based on the Orpheus myth) won eight Tony awards in 2019, further cementing the Brooklyn-based artist’s reputation as one of today’s foremost singer-songwriters. Fruitfully blurring the boundaries between traditional song and original composition, Mitchell addresses big archetypal themes with compelling emotional intimacy and uncanny eloquence. “Shaping the eternal truths of folk song into a subtly powerful commentary on modern times.” (Guardian)

Before her own full-band set, Mitchell also opens the show with her new super-trio line-up Bonny Light Horseman, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist/producer Josh Kaufman (The National/Hiss Golden Messenger) and Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats), formed during a 2018 residency at Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires Festival. As their name suggests, the band’s focus is on British traditional folksong, exploring its timeless tales and emotions via a free-handed mix of reinterpretation and rewriting, soon to be heard on their debut album.
