UNCSA Presents Anna & Elizabeth

  • Stevens Center - UNC School of the Arts 405 West 4th Street Winston-Salem, NC, 27101 United States (map)

UNCSA Presents: The American Music Series, six great concerts at the Stevens Center this summer. This concert features rising traditional Appalachian stars Anna & Elizabeth. The duo combine two powerful and very distinct voices to express their deep love of the music, singing and people of the Appalachian Mountains. With their album, “The Invisible Comes to Us” on Smithsonian Folkways, Anna & Elizabeth reveal what they find buried between the lines of traditional music. The result is an immersive, novelistic and groundbreaking exploration of old and nearly forgotten songs. This is not an exercise in nostalgia. It is a selection of music where the sounds themselves are integral to the retelling of these tales, alongside the sometimes cryptic and complex narratives of the sung and spoken word. Listeners to NPR might have heard this rising pure folk duo on “Tiny Desk Concerts.”
