American Epic: Screening and Q&A
Thursday 4th of June
Starring the likes of Nas, Jack White, Alabama Shakes, Elton John and Wille Nelson, American Epic (directed by Bernard McMahon) is an award-winning 3-part documentary series about the first recordings of rural music in the U.S.A. and their cultural, social and technological impact on the world.
In the 1920s, record companies in search of new styles and markets sought out regional musicians, from the streets of Memphis to the western prairies and the islands of Hawaii. Using recent interviews, early recordings, and a wide range of period film, photographs, and documents, many of them previously unknown or unpublished, American Epic explores the varied sources and extensive impact of this explosion of American popular culture.
The event will be a special showing of the documentary, finishing with a Q & A from creators Allison McGourty and Bernard MacMahon.
