Anna Roberts-Gevalt is a Baltimore-based fiddle player and
educator. After falling in love with old-time appalachian music in college,
Anna travelled to Eastern Kentucky to study. She has worked extensively with
ballad singer Elizabeth LaPrelle on multi-faceted performances that include
storytelling, ornate harmonies and lo-fi visual pieces utilizing puppetry and
traditional craft. “I believe so strongly in the importance of this old
music and all that surrounds it,” says Anna. “I believe, too, in the power
of the stage — the attempt to synthesize the world into a series of moments
and images that move us into feeling, into action, into realization… My work
investigates bridges between these worlds.”
