Ani DiFranco Comes to The CCA
Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Ani DiFranco will appear at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Downtown Concord, NH on Friday, September 14 at 8PM, as part of her "Rise Up" tour. The show also features special guest Peter Mulvey.>From the raw "folk punk" of her early albums through the jazz/funk grooves she created during her years touring with a five-piece band to the twists and turns of her current work as a solo artist, Ani DiFranco's restless creativity continually leads her and her listeners into ever more exciting territory. With the release of her latest album Binary, DiFranco returns to the road backed by her band mates Todd Sickafoose (bass) and Terence Higgins (drums). Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee, WI. He began his career on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, as a busker, and from there moved on to performing in the subways and streets of Boston, Massachusetts. This led to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring, beginning in the early Nineties. Tickets for the September 14 Ani DiFranco performance start at $35 and may be ordered by calling the Capitol Center for the Arts at (603) 225-1111 or online at ccanh.com. Tickets may also obtained at the Center's box office at 44 South Main St., Concord, NH, which is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 11AM to 6PM.
