Old-time duo Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle will join us for an intimate candle-lit concert. Grab a hot chocolate and cozy up as Anna & Elizabeth bring to life the vibrant world of Appalachia with a variety show featuring their signature crankies—scrolling storyboards inspired by ballads and oral histories, each drawn and crafted to be hand-cranked and unfurled at the pace of a song. 

Just in time to celebrate Imbolc, a Celtic traditional festival in February commemorating the turning of the season and the lengthening ofdays, young audiences will set the mood for the show by making their own candles and take a piece of the afternoon home with hand-made crankies.

Music: 2—3pm
Crafts: 3—4pm

“There's something truly inspiring about this collaboration…a very special treat for lovers of pure traditional singing and playing, aficionados of the great ballad, and anyone that gets excited witnessing culture carried forward with mastery, love and a profound and real understanding of what makes old material great.”Sing Out Magazine


Funding for An Imbolc Celebration also provided by the Charles Lawrence Keith & Clara Miller Foundation.
