mini review of Hadestown by Anais Mitchell

by Anais Mitchell- A high minded retelling of the Orpheus myth in Appalachia, the talented folk singer, a sometime Julie Miller soundalike, Mitchell uses friends Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Ani Difranco as characters in her chamber pop, Americana-based folk opera. Hauntingly beautiful and refreshingly original in today’s over-produced musical landscape.
