Tomorrow tune into NPR's Weekend Edition for an interview with Anais Mitchell. Anais has been hard at work on Hadestown, a folk-opera based on a modern interpretation of the Orpheus myth featuring some of the best voices in indie music today. Hitting shelves on March 9, this incredible album features Anais as Eurydice, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) as Orpheus, Ani DiFranco as Persephone, Greg Brown as Hades, Ben Knox Miller (The Low Anthem) as Hermes, and the Haden Triplets as the Fates.
In the words of Thom Jurek for All Music Guide, “Artfully conceived, articulated, and produced, Hadestown raises Mitchell's creative bar exponentially: there isn't anything else remotely like it.”
Check for local listings of Weekend Edition; then head on over to the Righteous Babe Store to reserve your copy of Hadestown today!
