Puppet Showplace Theatre presents: Ballads and Crankies
April 24, 2012
"Ballads and Crankies: A Night of Traditional Music, Collected Stories, and New Illustrations" combines the talents of old time fiddler Anna Roberts-Gevalt, ballad singer Elizabeth LaPrelle and shadow puppeteer Katherine Fahey.
Experience mountain stories and music through the magic of illustrated scrolls called "crankies." Reminiscent of shadow puppetry, these artists bring their stories to life with quilted cloth, ink and linoleum prints, and candlelit paper cuts.
