Patty Griffin, Sara Watkins and Anaïs Mitchell
Together on Stage

Presented in partnership with Sun Radio

In a highly anticipated national tour, Grammy Award-winner Patty Griffin joins forces with Sara Watkins and Anaïs Mitchell in a celebration of American songwriting and performance. More than just a three-act show, this special “singers-in-the-round” style show features all three artists on stage together, sharing songs and accompanying each other for the entire evening.

With a career spanning over two decades, Griffin is the recipient of many industry awards including Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album, and The American Music Association’s 2007 Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. In addition to standing out in a crowded field as an incredible vocalist, Griffin is also an accomplished songwriter.

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Sara Watkins, first praised for her work as a founding member of Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek, has since established an extraordinary solo career including highly acclaimed studio albums and collaborations with artists such as John Mayer and The Decemberists.

Anaïs Mitchell has been compared to Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Gillian Welch for her musical style, sound, and performance. Winner of the Kerrville Festival’s New Folk Award, Mitchell is widely recognized as a unique and impressive young voice in the resurging American folk movement.

“Griffin digs deep to display her distinctive vocals and original songs with stripped down arrangements that use space and the silence between notes to create shimmering music you won’t soon forget.” — American Songwriter

“Watkins is a consummate performer, adding both depth and rigour to a blend of bluegrass and fine contemporary songwriting.” — BBC Music

“Currently a well-kept secret, Mitchell is writing material that stands comparison with the great singer-songwriters of the past few decades.” — Daily Telegraph
