A special screening of Buster Keaton’s hilarious epic “The General” with live original soundtrack performed by The Tamerlane Ensemble (Mick Sullivan, Rob Collier, Chris Rodahaffer and Joey Thieman).
Two Nights – Thursday April 17th and Friday April 18th
Frazier History Museum
7-9pm Doors at 6.
The Tamerlane Ensemble is a continuation of the Tamerlane Trio, which viewers may be familiar with from An Evening with Poe. This performance is an instrumental set in which we’ll play an assortment of at least 9 different instruments – including banjo, mandolin, electric guitar, trumpet, and accordion. We tried to write new material that compliments each scene as well as the overall flow of the film.
The soundtrack will be a collection of a few melodies from the time period that are book-ended by original sounds drawn from traditional bluegrass, modern jazz, rock and even western swing music. In An Evening with Poe, our interpreters re-imagining the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the context of our modern world, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the music for An Evening with Buster.
