Voiceworks faculty member Elizabeth LaPrelle has been selected to join the national tour, “Music from the Crooked Road – Mountain Music of Virginia,” which travels throughout the Eastern US next month. The presentation includes old-time and bluegrass music, mountain gospel singing, and flatfoot dancing. The tour includes plenty of past Fiddle Tunes faculty as well as some sterling young Virginia musicians.
Elizabeth is exceptional in her devotion to and mastery of the ancient and deep art of Appalachian unaccompanied singing. She is renowned for her piercingly authentic mountain style and the devotion and honesty with which she approaches the poetry of the old songs.
She'll be teaching Southern Ballads at Voiceworks.
