Folk Alley Sessions Archives: Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer

(This Folk Alley Session was originally published in March, 2013)

Recorded at the 2013 Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto, Ontario, Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer talk about and perform songs from their stunning collaboration, Child Ballads. The pair came from across the country – Mitchell from Vermont and Hamer from Colorado – joining forces in Brooklyn and coming together over their fondness for traditional folk music from the British Isles.
