About

Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth Laprelle are inspired by the richness and traditions of Appalachian roots music. They gather songs and stories from archives and visits with elders, bringing these songs to life in their mesmerizing live performance.

They revive the old scrolling picture shows, dubbed 'crankies'. The pair use intricate picture-scrolls illustrating the old songs they sing, also using papercuts, shadow puppets, prints and embroidered fabric to brilliantly enhance the sparse, atmospheric arrangements for guitar, banjo, fiddle, and the uncanny blend of their voices in close harmony in a spellbinding concert.
