ANNA ROBERTS-GEVALT + GREY MCMURRAY

“A radical expansion of what folk songs are supposed to do.”

- The New Yorker on Anna's duo project, Anna & Elizabeth

About Anna:

Anna Roberts-Gevalt is a voracious and curious musician who nestles in the space between ancient ballads and new sounds. She spent ten years studying traditional music in the Appalachian mountains, with elder masters, and in archives. Anna now makes music, performance, and film inspired by her experiences, and experiments with connections she finds between old sounds and new ones. Her collaboration with Virginia ballad singer, Anna & Elizabeth, released its third record this spring on Smithsonian Folkways, which she co-produced, and features lauded experimental pedal steel player Susan Alcorn and Jim White (The Dirty Three). She currently serves as a guest curator of traditional music at Big Ears, an experimental music festival in Knoxville; was a fellow at The MacDowell Colony, Virginia Center for Creative Arts, Berea College Traditional Music Archive, OneBeat (Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation); and teaches fiddle and banjo across the country.
