Anaïs Mitchell & Michael Chorney

When: Thu., July 24, 8 p.m. 2014

There’s something haunting about Anaïs Mitchell’s songs — in a good way. Blessed with a virtuosic ability, the Vermont-raised, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter takes an unconventional approach to her craft. A compelling storyteller, she writes what Pitchfork describes as “absorbing narratives that pull the emotional rug out from under the listener.” Flawless lyrics and pared-down vocals inform a repertoire that ranges from personal to political to her folk opera, Hadestown. Accompanied by her longtime collaborator Michael Chorney, Mitchell takes the stage with a varied program that draws material from each of her albums.

Price: $9-18.
