Over the course of six beautiful albums in nearly 15 years, Elizabeth Mitchell has invited listeners to join her, husband Daniel Littleton, their daughter Storey, and other friends and relatives to become part of an extended musical family. Breathing contemporary heart into traditional folk songs, and transforming classic rock songs by David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, and others into folk songs, Mitchell continues to grow that family of listeners with each album and concert. And while the family has grown, with well over 100,000 of her records bringing comfort and joy, her music still makes Mitchell's audience feel like they are part of a small picnic jam session with her and her band You Are My Flower.
Mitchell is also a founding member of the veteran indie rock band Ida and is one of Smithsonian Folkways' best-selling artists alongside Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Ella Jenkins
