SAT. 4/16: JESSE & GLENDA DREW: BIG COUNTRY +

We welcome back the Drews to their old Mission stomping grounds; they bring more than a few surprises after years of music-doc research. This work-in-progress glimpse makes for a marvelous opportunity to apprehend the roiling controversies around the legacy of Country music. We’ve witnessed the gradual co-optation of folk music’s grass-roots authenticity by increasingly corporatized commercial interests, with the politics perversely rightward-leaning. Jesse and Glenda demo and discuss the hijacking of this proletarian tradition. Highlights include rare hell-raisin’ performances and clips from interviews with Pete Seeger, Billy Bragg, Utah Phillips, Hazel Dickens and many more. Come early for live pickin’, strummin’, and croonin’; 16mm recordings of Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Deuce Spruggins, Tex Ritter; and free moonshine in Mason jars!
