Fiddlin' screening (2019-Aug-27 @ 7 p.m.)
Tuesday, August 27, 2019 @ 19:00–20:36
The Little will screen Fiddlin' (Julie Simone, U.S. 2018, 96 min.) as part of the Little Summer of Music and Art series.
Fiddlin' is an Old Time and Bluegrass music documentary that takes place at the world's oldest Fiddler's Convention in the Appalachian Mountains.
Wayne Henderson, a worldrenowned luthier known as the "guitar god," is both a master craftsman and master storyteller. His friendship with 11-year old guitar prodigy Presley Barker shows just how closely knit a community of musicians can be. The enduring relationship between mentor and prodigy is a testament to music's power. With multi-generations jamming together, we are witness to some off-the-charts pickin' and fiddlin'. And when the top ten finalists are announced in the ultra-competitive guitar competition, we're in for an exciting and unexpected musical climax. With kids holding instruments instead of smart phones, it feels like we have taken a step back in time.
Fiddlin' is a celebration of true Americana and artistic expression in the face of adversity. This rollicking, inspiring film shines a light on what is best about America and shows the uplifting power of music.
