Cine presents a special screening of the new film SING MY TROUBLES BY: VISITS WITH GEORGIA WOMEN CARRYING THEIR MUSICAL TRADITIONS INTO THE 21st CENTURY. This feature-length documentary, directed by Neil Rosenbaum and co-produced by Art Rosenbaum and Lance Ledbetter, honors living older Georgia women who treasure and continue to perform the gospel, blues, mountain music and ballad traditions they grew up with. Folklorist and artist Art Rosenbaum visits the artists in the homes and churches where their music lives on—more than in studios and concert venues—and these visits reveal not only the music, but also the memories and life experiences of these grass-roots singers and musicians.
The evening will also include a Q&A session with Neil and Art Rosenbaum, and live performances by some of traditional musicians featured in the film, including The Myers Family and Friends, a family string band; mountain ballad singers sisters Mary Lomax and Bonnie Loggins; gospel singer Rev. Willie Mae Eberhart. In addition there will be string band music by Hawkproof Rooster (Charlie and Nancy Hartness) along with senior fiddler Earl Murphy, well-known old-time musician Beverly Smith, and Art and Margo Rosenbaum.
