Ani DiFranco, Hamell on Trial

When: Sat., Jan. 23, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Ani DiFranco was a prolific songwriter from a precocious age, building her music into a thriving independent business throughout the 1990s. As a feminine, feminist folk artist and a sustained DIY success story, DiFranco still commands a devoted cult. Her songs remain a specific taste, though, operating at a degree of emotional and political earnestness that might always trigger an acute allergy in aloof listeners. This show operates as a fundraiser for Americans United, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the constitutional separation of church and state. That foundational principle colors very current debates about marriage equality, reproductive rights and religious freedom—ideas circulating in DiFranco’s songs for decades. —Jeff Klingman
