Film Falmouth – Revival: The Sam Bush Story

April 16, 2016 by Beth Colt

The Woods Hole Film Festival is pleased to announce the 2015/2016 season of FILM FALMOUTH, a collaboration with Falmouth Academy to present a monthly screening series of independent film each year from October through May. Tickets are $14 per person or $25 for two people and $10 for students and veterans for the screening (children under 12 are free accompanied by an adult) and are available in advance through the links below or at the door. REVIVAL: THE SAM BUSH STORY A feature documentary film by Kris Wheeler and Wayne Franklin, 2015, USA, 98 min. Not many musicians can lay claim to being the “father” of an entire genre of music. Sam Bush can. While he’s inspired some of the world’s most famous bands and accomplished musicians, the “Father of Newgrass” remains an unknown legend to most. “Too old to be young and too young to be an old legend,” is how Sam describes himself. In Revival: The Sam Bush Story, audiences experience the power of Sam’s musical journey. Noted musicians, from Alison Krauss to John Oates, from the Avett Brothers to Chris Thile, say many of today’s biggest acts in Bluegrass, Newgrass, Americana and the jam band scene owe a debt of gratitude to Sam. But where does the “Father of Newgrass” fit in the new world of acoustic music

Ted Reinstein Talk

April 13, 2016 by Beth Colt

We are delighted to be bringing back Ted Reinstein, best known around New England as a longtime correspondent for “Chronicle,” the equally longtime and celebrated nightly newsmagazine which airs on Boston’s ABC affiliate, WCVB-TV.

He will be talking about his latest book: Wicked Pissed: New England’s Most Famous Feuds. “It’s a collection of colorfully contentious stories, all about New England’s most famous feuds: from CT vs. NC over who was “First in Flight,” to Concord vs. Lexington over which is the Birthplace of American Liberty…right on up to Sox vs. Yankees, and who perfected the fried clam. (Could be Woodman’s, could be…)  It covers spectacular spats in Boston politics (the Hub’s other hardball), as well as New England’s nettlesome history with some literary legends like Edgar Allan Poe, and Rudyard Kipling.”
