Grammy-Winning Singer/Songwriter Patty Griffin Comes to The CCA

GRAMMY - winning singer-songwriter Patty Griffin will perform at the Capitol Center for the Arts (CCA) on Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 7:30PM. Opening for Ms. Griffin is Anais Mitchell.

Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together. Over the course of two decades, she has crafted nine classic studio albums and two live collections, a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for "writing cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people...her songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends."

Based in Austin, TX, Griffin made an instant mark with her 1996 debut, Living With Ghosts, and its 1998 follow-up, Flaming Red - both now considered seminal works of modern folk and Americana. She has since received a number of prestigious accolades, notably the Americana Music Association's "Artist of the Year" and "Album of the Year" (for 2007's GRAMMY-nominated Children Running Through) as well as the 2011 GRAMMY Award for "Best Traditional Gospel Album," honoring 2010's Downtown Church.

According to NPR Music, "[Anais Mitchell's] voice is soft and sweet, her guitar work deft and evocative, but [she] is a songwriting storyteller first and foremost. [Mitchell] possesses a warm and ingratiating style to go with her evocative, impeccably crafted lyrics."

Tickets for the July 22 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.

The award-winning Capitol Center for the Arts (www.ccanh.com) inspires, educates, and entertains audiences by providing a quality venue for the performing arts as well as a wide range of professional-level, artistically-significant presentations. The Center is conveniently located off Rt. 93 in downtown Concord, New Hampshire and is close to several quality restaurants, shopping boutiques, and other area attractions. The facility first opened in 1927 as the Capitol Theatre, a prime stop on the Vaudeville circuit; it later became Concord's premier movie house and concert hall. After closing in 1989, it underwent a multi-million dollar renovation / modernization and reopened in 1995 as the Capitol Center for the Arts. Today, the Capitol Center is home to the 1304-seat Chubb Theatre, the Spotlight Café, The Governor's Hall ballroom, and the Kimball House, a Victorian mansion.
