Anaïs Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer - Child Ballads
with Special Guest Frank Fairfield
Tom Conlon opens.

The Davis Live Music Collective presents Anaïs Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer at Veterans’ Memorial Theatre, Saturday, March 16th. Anaïs will be performing in support of her new album, Child Ballads, due for release March 19th. It’s a collection of traditional songs from the British Isles she and Jefferson recorded in early 2012 with legendary Nashville producer Gary Paczosa (George Jones, Yo Yo Ma, Gillian Welch…). Their versions have been carefully re-imagined to reflect an American sensibility as well as a deep respect for the tradition.

Frank Fairfield is a young man and old time folk musician who plays guitar and banjo while singing and hollering. An unbelievable word of mouth sensation who channels the spirit of another era in his spellbinding live shows.
“One of America’s best conduits of antiquity” – Pitchfork

Tom Conlon will open up the evening and share his beautiful songs and stories.

Since his 1996 debut Soil Out of Sand, Tom Conlon, a native of New York, has been enchanting audiences across the country with a distinct blend of rich poetic lyricism, driving, elegant guitar work and an intensely personal delivery. “Growing up, my biggest musical influences came from my home and the church. I remember my Grandmother’s playing – she was a fantastic jazz pianist. Each time she played, it was a journey. The same was true in church – the music began, and you just sort of dove in. It was something you could get lost in, but together. So I guess my music tries to keep that tradition of taking a journey in the context of relationship – creating a shared space to experience eternal, timeless things.”

Tom is currently wrapping up production on a new full length album which is to be released in 2013.
