Featuring Kate Lissauer of The Buffalo Gals; a trio of live Bluegrass & Old-Time American musicians bring new life to this classic iconic Louise Brooks silent movie.

A Frome Festival Event:
An absorbing, poignant glimpse of a bygone time. Join this thrilling journey into another time as Brooks flees the law and rides the rails with her compadres. Inspiring and engaging musical talent accompanies a feast of imagery as three extraordinary musicians take us on an intoxicating, sometime raw, grim, tale of hobo life. Viewed by many as Brooks’ finest performance, it has a gravitas and storytelling power seldom seen in Hollywood films.

Providing a unique soundtrack are singer and champion fiddler Kate Lissauer (Buffalo Gals), arguably the UK’s finest Bluegrass guitarist, Jason Titley and internationally recognized and awarded 5-string banjo great, Leon Hunt.

“Absolutely magical” Stroud Film Festival.
