Patty Griffin, Sara Watkins and Anais Mitchell, Singletary
February 20, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Sara Watkins, first praised for her work as a founding member of Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek, has since established an extraordinary solo career including highly acclaimed studio albums and collaborations with artists such as John Mayer and The Decemberists. She has toured extensively as headliner, as well as performing and touring with such artists as Fiona Apple and Jackson Browne. Watkins is a frequent guest on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” and remains the only person invited to guest host on the program, which she did in 2010. Widely known as “the Queen of Modern Folk Music”, Anaïs Mitchell is first and foremost a storyteller. A Vermont-based singer-songwriter, Mitchell’s musical style, sound, and performance have led her to be compared to Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Gillian Welch. Mitchell was first signed by Ani Difranco to “Righteous Babe Records”, where she recorded for several years before starting her own “Wilderland” label in 2012. Among Mitchell’s recorded works are five full-length albums, including 2010′s sensationally reviewed “Hadestown” and 2012′s “Young Man in America”, which was described by critics as "genre-defining" and her "second consecutive masterpiece,” and for which she received a BBC Radio Two Folk Award nomination for “Best Original Song”. In addition to headlining worldwide, Mitchell has supported tours for Ani Difranco, The Low Anthem, Richard Thompson, Josh Ritter and Punch Brothers, as well as two sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall with the band Bon Iver."
