Anna Roberts-Gevalt

Banjo Player, Fiddler

Baltimore, United States

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.”
