American Epic Weekend
The weekend will include a screening of the award-winning trilogy of documentary films about the first recordings of rural music in the U.S.A. and their cultural, social and technological impact on the world. Described by the Hollywood Reporter as ‘a feast of musical and educational riches,’ and the Observer declaring it ‘one of the most interesting music programmes ever broadcast and a gorgeous history lesson’. Filmmaker Allison McGourty will be in attendance, leading a linked educational programme with local schools and taking part in a discussion about the trilogy.
The curated weekend will present audiences with an exclusive line-up of events including Q&A sessions with producer Allison McGourty, lectures from world famous music producers including Andrew Scheps (Producer of Adele’s ‘21’ Album) and an exhibition of rare photographs of the ground breaking musicians and equipment.
Leading Nashville-based singer songwriter Rod Picott will close the celebrations when he plays live at our ‘Music in the Hall’ session on Saturday, 5th October at 9:30pm.
