  • Welcome Anna & Elizabeth to Smithsonian Folkways

    Please welcome Anna & Elizabeth to the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings family! After two lauded albums, 2012’s Sun to Sun and 2015’s Anna & Elizabeth, Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle’s creative partnership yields us the next step in their musical evolution, The Invisible Comes to Us, slated for release on March 30th as part of the Smithsonian Folkways 70th anniversary celebration.

    Anna & Elizabeth’s The Invisible Comes to Us taps into their imagination-fueled arsenal to present an extraordinary work of unique, genre-bending storytelling and sonic exploration. Praised by many well-known musicians and widely loved for their moving minimalist arrangements, Anna & Elizabeth pioneers new ways of presenting old songs and stories to modern audiences. Co-producer Benjamin Lazar Davis (Cuddle Magic) and legendary avant-rock drummer Jim White (The Dirty Three, Xylouris White) assist in the duo’s vision of breathing life and new perspective into the crackling and disintegrating recordings and artifacts of the past. Rarely does an album based on traditional folk music resonate so strongly in modern times.

    Keep your eyes peeled to the Smithsonian Folkways website and social media sites for upcoming news about their amazing album and Anna & Elizabeth’s plans. Follow the band over on Facebook, Twitter, and Spotify. Make sure to catch them on tour, hitting Big Ears Festival, Folk Alliance International, APAP, and all around the US, UK, and Europe.
