ANNA & ELIZABETH
Tradfest @ Summerhall - Library Gallery
A collaboration between Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth Laprelle, the pair’s growing acclaim springs from a shared quartet of talents; both are historians, storytellers, visual artists, and intuitive musicians – in combination, a ground-breaking approach. Inspired by tradition, Anna & Elizabeth gather songs and stories to bring them to life with sparse, atmospheric arrangements using guitar, banjo, fiddle and uncanny close harmonies. They accompany their songs with story “crankies” – intricate picture-scrolls that illustrate the old songs.
