Greg Vandy brings the old-time to The Roadhouse tonight at 6pm.
Northwest Film Forum presents a special presentation featuring motion picture and newsreel footage from the 1920s and 30s of country, blues and jazz performers. Clips range from the iconic Jimmie Rodgers and Dock Boggs, to anonymous jugs bands, fiddlers and field hands. The footage captures musicians at work in a vanished America -- at barn dances, street corners, fiddler conventions and in the fields.
Musicians Tom Sauber, Mark Graham, and Orville Johnson will share their encyclopedic knowledge of Americana and old-time music as they narrate these rarely seen film clips. Following the film program, the trio will perform a set of their own music, inspired and informed by blues, bluegrass and American roots music.
Mark Graham and Orville Johnson, known as The Kings of Mongrel Folk, are among the two most talented and widely respected roots musicians in the United States.
Greg will break it all down in The Roadhouse.
Also, in the 8 o’clock hour, Greg has a VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT concerning the Roadhouse and Jug Band music. Tune in!
