Ani DiFranco's live shows are legendary, whether performing with a six-piece band or standing alone with her guitar, but some shows stand out from the rest. Ani's historic 2002 solo performance at the Carnegie Hall is one of those. The ecstatic vibrancy of that evening is captured on Righteous Babe Records' latest release, Carnegie Hall 4.6.02.

Ani DiFranco returned to Carnegie Hall for a sold out appearance a mere seven months after 9/11, a time when airlines and venues were just re-opening their doors. The weight of the stage on this particular occasion is poignant as Ani, a sought out voice for socio-political issues, confronted the heightened emotional state of her audience. Her live rendition of "Serpentine," an indefinable poem/song, transformed the room with its melancholic realizations, and from this shadowy vortex Ani's poem "Self Evident," is recited to an audience of New Yorkers still breathing the dust of their broken skyline. Ani recalls, "I will always remember this performance of "Self Evident" as being one of the most intense moments I have ever experienced on stage."

"She's become masterful at painting in the blues and grays of everyday emotion.  Spin Magazine

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Ani DiFranco (vocals, guitar).
Muze PNote Recorded at the venerable New York City venue in the spring following the 9/11attacks, this live set by renegade folkie Ani DiFranco is palpably informed by those tragic events, as the singer/songwriter plainly indicates in the album's liner notes. With only her plaintive voice and acoustic guitar, DiFranco mesmerizes the audience with highly emotional songs, most notably an early version of the extended piece "Serpentine" and the poem "Self Evident," which explicitly, and unflinchingly, addresses the aforementioned day in 2001. Ideal for DiFranco diehards, the release also offers up a sterling example of her spare, percussive aesthetic for newcomers to her impressive catalogue.

Professional Reviews

Dirty Linen (p.55)
- "DiFranco has a way of delivering words that is visceral. The politically charged poem 'Self Evident' is both wrenching and exhilarating."

Bio

Ani DiFranco

Ani DiFranco is a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist perpetually on the move. 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's restless creativity continually leads her and her listeners into ever more exciting territory.

Ani DiFranco's career has been full of surprises - for her, and for the rest of us - and she's no stranger to change, both sudden and slow. But some things remain unchanged, like her commitment to speaking the truth, as she sees it, without fear or concession. Bruce Cockburn recently observed in Performing Songwriter that Ani considers it part of her job description "to try and reflect real life in [her] songs. The life of the streets; the life of nations; the lives of people coping with power or its absence, looking for joy through the loneliness and pain and the complexities of relationship; the life of the spirit. All these are the stuff of human experience, and human experience is what we all share."

She does so with two basic instruments, both of which are also constants in her ever-evolving world: her trusty guitar and her unforgettable voice. Vanity Fair describes the latter as "astonishing...coolly, permanently urgent, tugging at the sleeve or close at the ear, like the murmur of a lover who knows every last secret and decides to stay."
