Local Listening: Anna & Elizabeth @ AS220


On Tuesday, March 10th, crankie-makers and singers of old songs from the Virginia Mountains and Baltimore ANNA & ELIZABETH will be playing and sharing tunes at AS220 in downtown Providence. Acclaimed young ballad singer Elizabeth LaPrelle of Rural Retreat Virginia and Baltimore based fiddler Anna Roberts-Gevalt who learned to play fiddle and banjo in visits to Eastern Kentucky have shared their crankies and harmonies in country stores, living rooms, classrooms, fine art museums and concert halls across the United States, and abroad in Uzbekistan and Ireland. “There’s something truly inspiring about this collaboration between 25 year olds from southwest Virginia… culture carried forward with mastery, love and a profound and real understanding of what makes old material great,” said SING OUT MAGAZINE.

The show will also feature crankies made by Providence artists:
fay strongin (with laura brown-lavoie)
naomi polina + sianna plavin
Ramshackle Enterprises

Doors at 7pm, show at 7:30.
