Anais Mitchell Feb 26 Hooker Dunham Theater Brattleboro VT

Anais Mitchell, Woodstock VT

Ticket reservations and info: 802-254-9276


The performance is presented by the Twilight Music Series. Anaïs (“uh-NAY-iss”) Mitchell writes songs that are "as intimate as conversations and as rich in detail as short stories. The daughter of “hippie back-to-the-landers” whose father was a novelist and English professor, she remembers her family’s home (another farmhouse in the same state) containing “a library full of novels, and lots of old folk and psychedelic rock albums. The books and the records all lived in the same room, which I am sure led to me thinking of songwriting as a kind of literature, a noble poetic enterprise.” (from her website).

She has been on the road around the US and in Europe promoting her epic Folk Opera Hadestown but this Brattleboro performance will be solo.

Darlingside, a "string rock" quintet that hails from Northampton MA will open (8:15pm).

From the Darlingside Website: Playing over 100 shows during their first year of touring, the band has created a seamless, exhilarating sound at the intersection of rock, classical and folk music. Lush five-part harmonies, classical cello-violin duets and compelling break-beats characterize the band's sound. Sam Kapala (drums, vocals), Don Mitchell (guitar, vocals), Auyon Mukharji (mandolin, violin, vocals), Harris Paseltiner (cello, guitar, vocals) and David Senft (bass, guitar, vocals) keep audiences on their toes with exuberant stage presence, spontaneous a cappella, frequent instrument switches, mind-boggling covers and a widely eclectic, cross-genre blend of original material.
