‘Hadestown’ Performs at NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert


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!

As a life-long nerdy fangirl from New Jersey, she loves Supernatural and its fandom as well as anything Wayward, Kings of Con, Lucifer, Wynonna Earp, and the musical Bandstand. She’s constantly listening to Louden Swain, The Station Breaks, Briana Buckmaster, The Avett Brothers, The Mots Nouveaux, or any of Aaron Mahnke’s podcasts. When she’s not [procrastinating] on Twitter, you can usually find her binging Netflix with her dog, reading fanfic, or daydreaming about being back in Arizona or Disney World!
