STAVE SESSIONS: Anna & Elizabeth

160 Mass Ave

Through their immersive creative process and modern-day approaches to ancient mountain ballads, Appalachian music duo Anna & Elizabeth bring vanished worlds and almost-forgotten songs to life. 

Multi-instrumentalist Anna Roberts-Gevalt and vocalist Elizabeth LaPrelle stand at the junction between folk tradition and the avant-garde. With their innovative modern arrangements, they transform traditional music into a vital, compelling, boundlessly creative contemporary form. 

Doors open 7:00pm / Shows start at 8:00pm

Prices, seating sections, and programs are subject to change.

“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.”

“Impossibly intimate, an experiment of the timelessness of human thought and emotion, right here and now. One of my favorite bands around.”
