Join us for this special presentation by Anna and Elizabeth, a young duo that “brings light to old ballads, tunes, hymns, and the stories of everyday people.” They honor the lives and creativity of those who have come before – ancestors, pioneers, friends, and dear teachers. With this in mind they try to pass the tradition to younger generations and encourage friendships across generations.
From their website:
“Their show is a captivating mix of ballads, foot-stomping dance tunes, stories and visual art. It’s a throwback, honoring the cultural and musical heritage from the hollows and old-time musicians gone but not forgotten. Their performance is unique, unforgettable. They’ve performed in house parlors and art museums, theaters in Lexington and Brookly and Asheville, shows in New Orleans and Boston, always with a startling professionalism and intimacy.”
Check out their performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk program!
