One Song: Poor Pilgrim of Sorrow

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 8.47.45 AM

Old time performers Anna & Elizabeth are it again. Since capturing hearts with their handmade crankies—magical scrolling displays that tell a story while they sing— this melodic duo has put together a new album. Called simply Anna & Elizabeth (iTunes/Amazon), the new release is chock full of storytelling ballads. Sixteen tunes draw deep from the well of mountain music, including this bare-boned rendition of “Poor Pilgrim of Sorrow,” which Anna discovered while listening to a 1937 archive recording from Leslie County, Ky.
