Ani DiFranco joins the Festival’s programming
Ani DiFranco — July 4, 8 p.m., — Théâtre Maisonneuve, Place des Arts
After a 12-year absence, 2018 marks the triumphant return to the Festival of the mythical Ani DiFranco, the American guitarist-singer whose career spans nearly 30 years, 20 albums, and a number of social struggles.
A committed artist to the very tips of her fingers, which is where her picking rhythm comes from, Ani DiFranco is a major figure in feminist folk.
For the occasion, she is back to present her 20th studio album, Binary, which sees her uncompromisingly tackle social issues over soul-influenced, percussive melodies, in her own immutable style.
