Ani Difranco will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Waterville Opera House, 1 Common St. in Waterville.

Widely considered a feminist icon, Grammy winner Ani DiFranco is the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label in 1990. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger,” her music has embraced punk, funk, hip hop, jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds.

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, Brandi Carlile, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and 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.

Tickets cost $48-$63.
