Friday Feature: Anna and Elizabeth

Anna and Elizabeth presenting a "Crankies" shadow puppet show
The duo, Anna and Elizabeth, offer unique performances combining old-time music, storytelling and shadow puppetry.  Go to their website,, and watch a "Crankies" video.  Their shows look like a magical experience!  I can't wait to see a live performance.

One of the things that is so inspiring about artists like Anna and Elizabeth is that they are using classic traditional formats to present fresh new work.  This is the sort of art that strikes a universal chord that can cross culture and boundaries to get at the essence of human experience.  Yes- I am a fan.
