Folk singer Ani DiFranco melds soul, funk, jazz, electronica and spoken word into her eclectic repertoire, which features the songs “Untouchable Face,” “32 Flavors” and “Wishin’ and Hopin’.” Singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey opens.
A Grammy-winning songwriter and collaborator, she uses her voice and her guitar as honestly as she can, writing and playing songs that come straight from her own experience, imagination, wit and understanding of how the world works. DiFranco has never stopped evolving, experimenting or pushing the limits of what can be said and sung, over the course of more than 20 albums. Her CDs include the live two-disc Living in Clip, the career retrospective Canon and her latest release, ¿Which Side Are You On?
Among DiFranco’s “lifelong tribe of co-conspirators” are Pete Seeger, Prince, Dr. John, Bruce Springsteen and Cyndi Lauper. The Buffalo, N.Y. native has made New Orleans her home base for much of the last decade, but she considers herself a traveler, touring the world both solo and with her band.
VIP package ($89.50) includes best seats in the house and an autographed CD.
