ESCAPING THE ERA | Immersed deep in the study and practice of traditional Appalachian music is the Southwest Virginia duo ANNA AND ELIZABETH, whose stage shows include storytelling, shadow puppets, and a narrative storyboard of illustrations called a crankie. They play with the Irish ballad duo the MURPHY BEDS; one of whom, Jefferson Hamer, currently tours with the popular folk singer Anais Mitchell. An educational and possibly restorative Monday night engagement at Acoustic Artisans. 8 pm, $10 at 594 Congress St., 207.671.6029.
