Singer/Songwriter Brittain Ashford will be on campus from September 8-9, 2023 and will be performing a concert of her own music at 8pm in Rosch Recital Hall on September 9th. The concert is free to the public and counts at MUS 120 credit for all music majors.

She’s released two albums under the moniker Prairie Empire, a solo album of show tunes “run through a David Lynch filter” called Drama Club, numerous singles, and has most recently released a new album under her own name, Trotter. Her music has been featured on MTV’s Catfished and HBO’s Search Party.

While Ashford has spent much of her career recording and touring in support of her original music, her unlikely appearance in the Broadway musical The Great Comet of 1812 took her in a slightly different direction. Lin-Manuel Miranda once suggested that she could sing while he wept into a bucket, and The New York Times said she should have been nominated for a Tony. Since her time on Broadway, she has returned to writing and performing her own music. She would prefer you not think of her as a “theatre person”.
