Two duets: two ladies from the Appalachian old-time tradition, and two gents from the Irish tradition. We met this fall, and spent the weekend singing. This spring we are excited to be traveling together, to bring you a show of Appalachian ballads, Irish songs, fiddle and banjo tunes, bouzouki & guitar, stories, and illustrated scrolling crankies
ANNA & ELIZABETH (Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth Laprelle) live in Southwest Virginia; they weave traditional Appalachian music—ballads, fiddle tunes and harmonies—with storytelling, shadow puppetry & scrolling illustrations called crankies. They have shared their show, to great acclaim, across the US, including the High Museum of Modern art in Atlanta, to the Seattle Folk Festival, and the Lexington Opera House (KY).

Anna & Elizabeth are at the heart of what we all call "traditional”…. I am so impressed with not only their talent, but also their commitment to keeping it real and digging below the surface. They represent not only what they do, but the people they learned it from. -- Ginny Hawker
THE MURPHY BEDS (Jefferson Hamer and Eamon O’Leary) present traditional Irish ballads & songs, in close harmonies and deft instrumental arrangements. They have just released their first album as a duo.www.murphybedsmusic.com
