Multi-instrumentalist Anna Roberts-Gevalt and ballad-singer Elizabeth LaPrelle honor Appalachian artistry with a repertoire collected from archives, elder musicians, and their contemporaries among the old-time renaissance in the U.S. In haunting ballads, lilting lullabies, and songs of grace and redemption, the duo showcases arresting vocal harmonies that seem both very old yet fresh and raw. Roberts-Gevalt and LaPrelle also create and perform with “crankies,” remarkable old-fashioned story-scrolls.
Songs performed: “John of Hazelgreen”, “Here In the Vineyard”, “Sing Those Hymns”
