      Anna & Elizabeth honor Appalachian artistry and shed new light upon tradition. Elizabeth LaPrelle, an acclaimed ballad singer from Rural Retreat, VA, and Baltimore based multi-instrumentalist Anna Roberts-Gevalt, have made their most compelling work to date in their new self-titled album on Free Dirt Records. A collection of 16 traditional songs thoughtfully gathered and interpreted, the album guides listeners through the duo’s intense personal connection with each song, for an experience that is as warm and intimate as their one-of-a-kind live performances. Soaring through rousing old-time dance numbers, haunting Appalachian ballads and lilting lullabies, Anna & Elizabeth showcases the incredible vocal capabilities of both LaPrelle and Roberts-Gevalt, and shimmers with breathtaking moments of harmony, all laid atop masterfully executed instrumentals. A record equally as invigorating as it is contemplative, Anna & Elizabeth allows for the prolific talents of these two young women to shine brighter than ever before.

      The voice hits you first... LaPrelle’s shimmering resonance has been compared to that of Emmylou Harris, her ornamental trill to the church-influenced work of Ralph Stanley and Iris DeMent. … Roberts-Gevalt is an acclaimed musician in her own right … energetic and rangy. — Garden & Gun
