Anais Mitchell took to facebook today to announce a gig at London’s Cecil Sharp House, showcasing material from her forthcoming album of traditional folk songs.
The Vermont singer told FFS in a recent interview that she would be releasing a record of English and Scottish folk ballads with songwriter Jefferson Hamer. The album, Child Ballads, was recorded in Nashville with Dolly Parton producer Gary Paczosa, and will be released in February 2013.
The Cecil Sharp House show is on 5th March. Tickets are available now. Anais reassured facebook fans that more UK dates will be announced soon.
