About Film Screening: The Groove is Not Trivial with Q&A
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Groove is Not Trivial follows master fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s personal journey in search of self-expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse —a groove — that runs through his virtuosic performances with cellist Natalie Haas and his dynamic teaching at his wildly popular, freewheeling fiddle camps in California, Scotland, and Spain. At his gatherings around the world for musicians of all ages and abilities, ‘the groove’ is a through-line from the past that sparks hopeful possibilities for the future.
Fraser is at the epicenter of a movement in which people are finding their own voices and a deep sense of community through the shared love and joy of music. A subversive empowerment is happening as people reclaim cultural roots in jeopardy of being lost.
The irrepressible Fraser proves that the groove in traditional music transcends toe-tapping fun – it can be a source of personal and political liberation.
Rating: N/C 8+ (Not certificated by the BBFC and only those 8 and over may attend).
