As part of her CD release celebration tour, contemporary folk singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell will be performing at the Evening Muse Tuesday evening March 6th. Doors at 8, ~$12. Rachel Ries to open – which is special due to Rachel being a collaborator on Anais’ “Country” e.p., they released in 2008.

A little about this talented singer-songwriter: As a child Anais grew up on a farm in Vermont, traveled around the world and later attended Middlebury College. She began writing and performing songs at the age of seventeen. This young start has led to numerous releases over the past decade. On a single afternoon in 2002, Anais recorded her debut album “The Song They Sang When Rome Fell”. In 2003 she won the New Folk award at the Kerrville Folk Festival. These signaled the start of a bright future in music.

Her album, Hymns for the Exiled, was released in 2004. This recording attracted the attention of singer/songwriter, Ani DiFranco who signed Mitchell to the Righteous Babe Records label.

In 2006 Anais debuted a draft of her Hadestown "folk opera". A revised version of Hadestown was staged in 2007 and her third album, The Brightness, was released on Righteous Babe Records that same year. In 2008 Anais was nominated in the Contemporary Artist category of the third annual Folk Alliance awards show broadcast. In September that same year Righteous Babe Records released country e.p., a split vinyl/CD EP she recorded with Rachel Ries (tonights opener!).

Hadestown, a recording of her folk opera was released on Righteous Babe records in March 2010 and received very favorable reviews.

Tonight Anais celebrates and shares with Charlotte the release of her latest work, titled “Young Man in America”, on her Wilderland Records label in 2012. The current tour and the show on tap at the Evening Muse tonight is a part of this CD release tour!
