Anais Mitchell is a young songwriter from Vermont. Her music is primarily acoustic, and she borrows heavily from the American folk tradition. Her
songs are often topical, ranging from American politics to literature references, to recollections of real events. Her voice is one-of-a-kind, a
captivating, trance-enducing chime. She has an elusive way with words, and one stops just to listen at the very first hint of her voice.
