Shadow Ballads
Featuring: Elizabeth LaPrelle and Anna Roberts-Gevalt (www.annaandelizabeth.com), Peni Candrarini (www.penicandrarini.com), Gusti Sudarta, Danis Sugiyanto, Andy McGraw, Hannah Standiford and guests from Richmond, Virginia.  

This unique event brings together leading performers of Appalachian and Asian music and theater to relate shared experiences of everyday life from opposite ends of the world. Master artists from Virginia and Indonesia will combine crankies, a form of American folk theater depicting ballads on paper and cloth rolls, with wayang kulit, a traditional form of Asian shadow puppetry. Shadow Ballads will be accompanied by a unique combination of American old-time music and the Indonesian kroncong string-band. Members of the audience will be invited on to try the crankies and shadow puppets after the performance.
