Join us for a Free at Noon at the World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington as Ani DiFranco and Matt Duke perform a live midday concert on Friday.

Ani DiFranco is far from your average folk singer/songwriter. She has been performing since the early 90s and has more than 20 albums to her name, in addition to activism work ranging as wide as her discography. The singer/songwriter uses her talent in anti-war campaigns, in support of environmental rights and for feminism advocacy. However, in her latest album, 2012’s ¿Which Side Are You On?, DiFranco hones in more on her personal life. Join her at Friday’s Free at Noon at World Café Live at the Queen in Wilmington. After her performance, DiFranco will headlines the Queen that night. Tickets for the show can be purchased here.

With her prolific outpouring of self-produced albums, she has inspired countless of musicians and fans with her unique guitar playing, lyrical content and cottage-industry business model that many musicians have aspired to.
