Anaïs Mitchell is an American singer-songwriter and musician who has won herself the title: “Queen of modern folk music.”

Her new album, her fourth, “Child Ballads” – recorded with friend and collaborator, Jefferson Hamer – has been nominated for two awards in the BBC2 Radio Folk Awards 2014, for Best Album and Best Traditional song.

And fRoots magazine has shortlisted her for the Album of the Year award with the winner due to be announced this week (December 6).

“Child Ballads” is a collection of traditional songs from the British Isles, named after their collector, Francis James Child. In one interview, the album was described as “ a gorgeous reconfiguration of some of those tales, made all the more compelling by its spare acoustic guitar settings and intimate harmonies.”

Her previous releases have included “Hadestown” and “Young Man in America.”
