Anna Roberts-Gevalt

Join Smithsonian Year of Music artist-in-residence Anna Roberts-Gevalt as she gives daily sonic meditations and responses to “everyday monuments”—sculptures, buildings, physical markers and structures that hold memories and need constant tending and activation. Humans also create monuments—the sort held in our bodies, in the stories we tell, the wisdom of our teachers, in old traditional songs. These are active monuments—here for tending, questioning, fragmenting.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Anna Roberts-Gevalt is a Brooklyn-based artist, and Smithsonian Folkways musician whose work moves outward from her immersion in traditional music, having apprenticed with elder masters of banjo and fiddle in rural Kentucky. Her multi-media collaboration with ballad singer Elizabeth LaPrelle was heralded “a radical expansion of what folk songs are supposed to do” by the New Yorker. They have performed at Carnegie Hall, Cafe Oto, Big Ears Festival, and NPR’s Tiny Desk, and were MacDowell Colony fellows and guests at Meredith Monk’s gala. She has recently worked with Jim White, Glen Hansard, Susan Alcorn, Leo Abrahams, and Timo Andres, amongst others; and is currently pursuing an MFA in Sculpture at Bard College.
