ANNA & ELIZABETH, ALICE GERRARD

NIGHTLIGHT, CHAPEL HILL

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15

Two acts from very different generations but that share the mutual mission of preserving traditional American music converge. First, there's Durham resident Alice Gerrard, who has spent her life collecting and performing old-time music before finally earning a Grammy nomination for her efforts last year. Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle, two 27-year-olds interested in continuing her work, headline. As Anna & Elizabeth, they carefully and confidently restore the esoteric tunes of Appalachia. Their new self-titled record is a beautiful set of simple ballads and other old-time sundries, with Gerrard adding hair-raising harmonies to three numbers. Anna & Elizabeth augment their set with "crankies," handmade scrolls that illustrate verbose tunes with colorful visuals. 8:30 p.m., $10–$12, 405 W. Rosemary St., Chapel Hill, 919-960-6101, www.nightlightclub.com.Allison Hussey
