Song As Old As Time. A Conversation with Anna & Elizabeth

Anna & Elizabeth give a new life to songs that have been forgotten. They sing American folk music written 100 or even 400 years ago and do it in their own authentic way. They visited Lithuania on their first tour to mainland Europe.

In this episode of our podcast, we asked Anna & Elizabeth how old music can help us escape the present. And what is it about music that for thousands of years humans are still singing? Hear the conversation above.
