Mountain Music Project film screening at D&E

December 5, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

The groundbreaking documentary that examines simularities between Nepali and Appalachian Music is coming to D&E! We will show the film and have a Q&A with the film’s co-host, Danny Knicely. This is an event not to miss!

“Two traditional musicians from the hills of Virginia take you to the villages of rugged Nepal, where you discover the amazing similarities between Appalachian and Himalayan folk music—and the eerily parallel heritage that gave birth to them both. This vivid portrayal of endangered music and culture celebrates remarkable instruments, foot-tapping sounds, and the people who create them.”
Jonathan B. Tourtellot

“What they did in that film would not be possible for a lot of people. You don’t get that kind of response from people when you just go interview them. They lived with and jammed with the musicians as a musician. There is no better way to do it!”
Curtis Burch
Grammy award winning musician and one of the founding members of the legendary and pioneering bluegrass band New Grass Revival.
