Four excellent young singer/songwriters in a songswap format. In the words of Anais Mitchell, "the tin pan caravan is robert blake, louis ledford, rachel ries, and myself. the caravan is a transcontinental, songwriting, guitar-pickinŐ vehicle of hallelujah, goddamn! navigating the harsh terrain of contemporary american folk music. catch us if you can."
They did a really fun show here just two years ago, which may very well have been the last time they toured together. Now they will reunite for a short tour of New England immediately following a two-week run of performances of Anais' folk opera Hadestown which sets the Orpheus myth in a post-apocalyptic depression-era company town.
