Deb Flanders' 19th Annual Calais Concert

19th ANNUAL CALAIS CONCERT

" Songs of Salty Seas, Romance & Revolution"

FEATURING ANNA and ELIZABETH

SUNDAY, JULY 23, 2017 at 4:00pm  

The collaboration between Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle spans worlds — between their homes in Brooklyn and rural Virginia -- between deep study of mountain ballads with old masters and explorations into the avant garde — between music, performance, and visual art.

Six years deep into their work together, they have spent the past year visiting traditional music archives in their home states of Vermont and Virginia, working that raw material at residencies, and are in the midst of a new cycle of work together, including a third studio album; a multimedia stage show incorporating movement, illustration, storytelling and music; a pair of dance films; and a series of quilted illustrations called “crankies."

Singer Deb Flanders, multi-instrumentalist folk musician Pete Sutherland, fiddler Oliver Scanlon, cellist John Dunlop and violinist Laura Markowitz will join them in a memorable afternoon of music making.

Concert held at the Old West Church in Calais, VT. General Admission at the door:  $15- a portion of the proceeds benefit the Vermont Folklife Center.

Media Skills and Project Planning for Educators

Media-making can be a powerful tool for exploring subject-area content, for student self-expression and engagement, and for relationship-building within the community. Additionally, collaborative community-based media projects have students practice the interpersonal and technical skills that will continue to be relevant to their lives and work in the future.
