October 2
Jubilee Community Arts presents Anna & Elizabeth
Elizabeth LaPrelle and Anna Roberts-Gevalt
8 pm at the Laurel Theater, corner of 16th and Laurel Avenue in the historic Fort Sanders neighborhood of Knoxville near the UT campus.

Anna and Elizabeth have immersed themselves with old (and young) masters and folklorists, playing on porches and in kitchens, staying up all night to learn just one more song. Each used college to dive deep into history and archives, reading folklore and stories, listening to scratchy records of haunting voices, learning from relatives of long-gone greats. Their music has evolved; raw, sparse ballads, sweet lullabies, driving fiddle tunes and banjo songs, home music where less is more. Elizabeth's remarkable deep mountain voice and Anna's modern one, an uncanny blend create a unique combination.

Tickets: $14 (discounts apply to advance purchase, JCA members, students & seniors)
