The Deal

Use Your Voice Tour 2016

  • Patty Griffin: With a haunting soprano that moves from belt to whisper and back, Patty painstakingly crafts tunes that meld folk, rock, gospel, and Americana. And critics have noticed. She not only won the Americana Music Association’s 2007 Artist of the Year Award, but she earned a 2011 Grammy for Best Traditional Gospel Album. Recently, she’s also had her songs covered by Emmylou Harris and the Dixie Chicks, and released the acclaimed Servant of Love.
  • Sara Watkins: Besides co-founding the popular progressive bluegrass group Nickel Creek, this singer-songwriter, violinist, fiddler, and percussionist has toured with The Decemberists, guest hosted A Prairie Home Companion, and released a series of high-charting folk solo albums.
  • Anaïs Mitchell: With a sound that AllMusic.com says encompasses ”the earthiness of Shawn Colvin, the childlike bite of Joanna Newsom, and the urban jumpiness of Ani DiFranco,” this oft-named “queen of modern folk music” bowled over critics with the 2006 folk-opera Hadestown (which is currently being adapted for Off-Broadway). She also consistently lands on “Best-Of” lists by NPR, the Wall Street Journal, and the Guardian.

Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts

Since opening its doors in 1955, Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts has attracted arts attenders from across the Northeast. The reason is clear: a short hop, skip, and a jump from the garage and you're immersed in the center's robust programming, which places special emphasis on top quality entertainment, as well as music, dance, and comedy from all corners of the globe. Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, and Jon Stewart have all commanded the attention of auditors tucked into more than 2,300 seats. Things get more intimate for the venue's Cabaret Series, which won Connecticut Magazine's Best Cabaret award. During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
