Elizabeth LaPrelle & Sandy Newlin
Elizabeth LaPrelle is best known as one half of the currently super hot folk duo Anna & Elizabeth.
Tonight she is performing with her mother, Sandy Newlin.
Elizabeth LaPrelle has been performing Appalachian ballads and old-time songs since she was eleven. Her magnificent voice, her respect for the songs, and her authentic mountain sound and style brought her to the attention of first Ginny Hawker and then Sheila Kay Adams.
Raised in Rural Retreat, Virginia, Elizabeth attended old time fiddlers’ conventions and sang harmonies with her family, who taught her traditional singing styles and encouraged her to sing their own favourite American folk music. She received her undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary with a major in Southern Appalachian Traditional Performance.
This is a super rare opportunity to experience an evening of utterly authentic Appalachian folk singing.
