Podcast: Meet Our Makers Episode 41: Anaïs Mitchell – To Hadestown and Back Again

In this episode – the first of 2022 – I have the privilege of meeting Tony- and Grammy-award winning songwriter, singer, and composer Anaïs Mitchell.

Despite having several solo records under her belt and a side-gig in folk trio Bonny Light Horseman, it was her 2019 Broadway hit musical Hadestown that catapulted her to the public eye. In this chat, Mitchell and I discuss Hadestown, including its very long story of how it go to the Broadway stage. We also talk about her new self-titled record, her most personal yet, and what it was like getting back to solo records after such a long time away. Please enjoy, and thank you for listening.
