HadesTown

One of my very favorite concept albums is Anais Mitchell's Hadestown. It's written as an opera telling the story of Orpheus and his journey into Hades to rescue the soul of his recently deceased bride. Mitchell is joined on the album by some of my favorite artists including Ani Difranco, Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), and the epic Greg Brown as Hades.

Here are a couple samples for you:

If it's True -- Justin Vernon 




Why We Build the Wall -- Greg Brown
