NPR Music took a trip way down to Hadestown this past March 2!
The cast, band, and song-writer Anaïs Mitchell of the 8-time Tony Award-winning musical, Hadestown performed an impeccable set for NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert series. They started with “Way Down Hadestown,” and continued with “Come Home With Me/Wedding Song,” “When The Chips Are Down,” “Flowers,” and “Why We Build The Wall.”
Based on Greek Mythology, Hadestown tells the tale of two love stories: the young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and the Gods, King Hades and his wife Persephone.

Though NPR is postponing new live tapings of (in-person) Tiny Desk Concerts, they will continue to release shows that have already been recorded as well as Tiny Desk (home) Concerts!
