Anna & Elizabeth will present an evening of music, storytelling, art and appreciation for two significant archival collections in Middlebury. Their much anticipated recording on Smithsonian Folkways, The Invisible Comes to Us, features traditional songs the pair learned by exploring the Margaret MacArthur Collection of the Vermont Folklife Center Archive and the Helen Hartness Flanders Ballad Collection at Middlebury College Special Collections. The Invisible Comes to Us is a spellbinding reconfiguration of these ancient folk ballads that sees the duo’s immersion in American traditional music move to a place of boundless experimentation.

They were recently featured on NPR’s  “All Songs Considered”  – check out Anna & Elizabeth Are Excavating Folk Music’s Many Mysteries.

Anna & Elizabeth will be joined by Middlebury native, Moira Smiley who brings elegance and grit to folk songs both original and ancient.

Proceeds from this event will support the Vermont Folklife Center’s mission to document, sustain and present the diverse cultures of Vermont.

Concert is part of Vermont Arts 2018 and is sponsored by Green Mountain Power and the Middlebury College Department of Music.
