Brooklyn-based indie folk singer and Tony Award-winning creator of the hit Broadway musical Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell headlines an intimate seated gig as part of In the Round.

With beginnings firmly rooted in narrative folksong, poetry and balladry, Anaïs has received praise for her musical style and charismatic live performances.

Among her recorded works are Child Ballads, Young Man in America, and the 2019 Tony Award-winning Hadestown. Other accolades include the Folk Alliance 2018 Spirit of Folk Award and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

‘The most engaging, and in some ways, most original artist working in the field of new American folk music’
