The Appalachian music duo Anna & Elizabeth are performing tonight at the Gold Town Nickelodeon. They play music once forgotten and rediscovered from historical archives. Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle shared some of the taboos and traditions of playing the music in a modern context on KXLL.
They take the stage at the Alaska Folk Festival sponsored show at 7 p.m.
