Award-winning singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco is heading back to Montana in 2023! She’ll perform at The ELM in Bozeman on March 22nd and The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, March 24th. Indie-Americana songstress Pieta Brown will perform opening sets for each show.
Ani Difranco has received many honors and awards. She’s been Grammy nominated nine times and won Best Recording Package for Evolve in 2003. She’s received the Woman of Courage Award from the National Organization for Women, the Gay/Lesbian American Music Award for Female Artist of the Year, and the Woody Guthrie Award. At the 2013 Winnipeg Folk Festival she received their prestigious Artistic Achievement Award, and an honorary doctorate from the University of Winnipeg. In 2017, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from A2IM (a nonprofit trade organization that represents independent record labels) and the Outstanding Achievement for Global Activism Award from A Global Friendship.
She’s shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Michael Franti, and many more. After recording with Ani in 1999, Prince described the effects of her independence, saying “We jammed for four hours and she danced the whole time. We had to quit because she wore us out. After being with her, it dawned on me why she’s like that – she’s never had a ceiling over her.”As an iconic songwriter and social activist, she has been the inspiration for woman artists and entrepreneurs for over two decades. She has been featured on the covers of SPIN, Ms., Relix, High Times, and many others for her music and activism.
Earlier this year, Ani released the 25th anniversary edition of Living in Clip. Twenty-five years later the album is recognized as a point of entry that radically expanded DiFranco’s audience, and a historically important testament to the relationship between Ani as a live performer and the devoted community she created with her fans.
“The world needs more radicals like Ani DiFranco: wry, sexy, as committed to beauty and joy as revolution.” – Rolling Stone

Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Bon Iver, Brand Carlile, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and many more. Her most recent albums include 2021’s Revolutionary Love and the July 2022 25th Anniversary Edition reissue of her iconic live album Living In Clip, both on her own label Righteous Babe Records. Her memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream was released in May 2019 by Viking Books, and was a New York Times Top 10 best seller.
