Dale Farmer, who is a member here and longtime oldtime player is involved with a new movie that will be really cool.


I've provided an early Kentucky fiddle to be played and used in the Movie.  I'm looking forward to it.

That looks like it will be good. And not a spaceship or superhero in sight. Hopefully it will get a good release spread.

Hopefully it will be available, pretty rapidly, on DVD or through Netflix/Hulu for those of us who live in areas that don't have theaters [ or one's that play anything other than "mainstream"].

Man I think this would be great. Just to know how it was done in the day..and where old time I guess originated. There's lot's of us that play so called hot licks and there is so many of of us that don't... we had better stay to what they have learned and that good enough for them . Once upon a time I played on National Geographic's Civil War project and can't help but think of how those folks would have played the tunes..a lot different than I do for sure. But the flame lives on. Jerry

I watched the preview, and I am sorry but I am not going to be kind about it, just because it is about Appalachian music. The lighting glares across the scenes in a dreadful washed out 2017 immediacy. The acting and dialog is stilted, and as is usual with directors who have no affinity with cinema period pieces, they overlook details like clean white-wall tires on a 1930s pickup truck on a muddy or dusty farm. It is often the quality of the dirt in a period piece that is the measure of its authenticity and its mood.
