Singer-songwriter and musician Anais Mitchell, who has been heavily influenced by the confessional alternative folk stylings of Ani DiFranco, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at the Chocolate Church Arts Center at 804 Washington St. in Bath.

Mitchell began writing songs when she was 17. She is a Vermont and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who comes from the world of narrative folksong, poetry and balladry. Among her recorded works are the award-winning Child Ballads, Young Man in America and Hadestown, the latter of which she expanded into a theatre show. Hadestown debuted off-Broadway in 2016 at New York Theatre Workshop, and will open at London’s National Theatre in November 2018 before transferring to Broadway.

Tickets cost $22 in advance or $25 at the door.
