Anna & Elizabeth with Benjamin Lazar Davis

Their show is like no other. Through their immersive creative process and bold interpretations, Anna & Elizabeth’s visionary partnership pioneers new ways of presenting old songs and stories to modern audiences. Since 2011, with a deep and shared love of old Appalachian music, they stand at the vanguard of tradition and the avant-garde, transforming traditional music with innovative, modern arrangements. Their captivating performance integrates visual art, movement and experimental film with breathtaking harmonies.

The performance magic comes from unique strengths of each artist: Elizabeth LaPrelle, lauded as the finest traditional singer of her generation, is rooted in rural Virginia and a lifetime of singing ballads. Anna Roberts-Gevalt’s musical path has led her from the kitchens of Kentucky banjo elders to sessions in Brooklyn’s thriving experimental music world. A master instrumentalist, Anna is the band’s arranger and driving force.

“Heartbreakingly great.”Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire)
“They brought many of us to tears with some of the most yearning harmonies I’ve heard at the Tiny Desk…Take a deep breath and soak it all in.” Bob Boilen (NPR MUSIC)
“They bring past lives to the present through exquisite music, storytelling and their wonderful stage presence.” Brighton Festival
“This is pure folk music—it doesn’t get much better than this.” Folk Alley

 

Tickets: £14.50; £13.50 concs.
