Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle met in 2010 and soon began planning adventures together. These talented young women use all the creative tools they can think of: storytelling, research, fiddle, banjo, guitar, ballads, puppets, poetry, and moving scrolls called “crankies”. Anna and Elizabeth dedicate their work to honoring the lives and creativity of those who have gone before us- ancestors, pioneers, friends and teachers. They enjoy bringing light to old ballads, tunes, hymns and stories of everyday people. Anna and Elizabeth’s interest in tradition and heritage go well beyond music. They strive to engage themselves and their audience with traditional art in all the forms it can take—from canning to woodcuts, quilting to singing, to better express the rich stories the Appalachian region has to share, and to engage younger generations in the same.
