The Boston Globe profiles singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell.

Anais Mitchell is a true child of Vermont: the daughter of hippies, raised on a farm, indoctrinated as a tot by her English professor father into the world of words and storytelling. Mitchell followed her own literary muse, guitar in hand, to become a singer-songwriter. And she has channeled a Vermonter's can-do attitude into her current project: a folk opera called "Hadestown" that re-imagines the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
