SOUL OF A BANQUET features interviews with Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, and Cecilia Chiang herself.

The 78 Project is on a journey across America to make one-of-a-kind 78rpm records with musicians in their hometowns using a 1930s Presto direct-to-disc recorder. With one microphone. With one blank disc. In one 3-minute take. Along the way, a kaleidoscope of technologists, historians and craftsmen from every facet of field recording – Grammy-winning producers, 78 collectors, curators from the Library of Congress and Smithsonian – provide insights and history. In Tennessee, Mississippi, California, Louisiana, the folk singers, punk rockers, Gospel and Cajun singers in the film share their lives through intimate performances, and find in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy.


Musical performers in The 78 Project Movie include The Reverend John Wilkins, Victoria Williams, John Doe, Holly Williams and Chris Coleman, John Reilly and Tom Brosseau, Jaron Lanier, Ella Mae Bowen, Dylan LeBlanc, The Bo-Keys with Percy Wiggins, John Paul Keith, Ben Vaughn, The Easy Leaves, Little Wings, Gaby Moreno and Adam Levy, Coati Mundi, Sea of Bees, Joe Bussard, Louis Michot, Corey Ledet and Ashlee Michot and Dawn Landes.

Pete Kilpatrick hails from the music mecca of the northeast, Portland, Maine. He has been writing, recording, and performing regularly since 2002 and has released six independent albums to date including his most recent effort, Heavy Fire. Pete’s songwriting style dynamically blends elements of acoustic folk, rock, and pop with introspective lyrics that capture his listeners and draw them closer in.


Pete has been named Maine’s best act four times in Portland’s Best Music Awards and has performed over 1,200 shows since the beginning of his music career, sharing the stage with members of Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, David Gray, Jason Mraz, and O.A.R. His music has been featured on hit television shows such as, The Office, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, and The Real World.


Pete’s latest record, Heavy Fire has been his most ambitious to date, featuring his melodic lyrical style over the top of intricate musical arrangements. It was a true collaborative effort written primarily at his house, situated on a spectacular coastal Maine river. Longtime friend and session bassist Matt Cosby remarks, “It’s a great place to write. If you get hung up on a part, just step outside and sit by the water for a bit…get your head right."


The album was recorded and produced at Red Vault Recording and mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig. Recording at Red Vault, owned and operated by Pete Morse, gave the players on the record the unlimited freedom to perfect the sound they were aiming for, and it’s evident throughout Heavy Fire from the memorable hook on American Dream to the riff from title track, Heavy Fire. Stefan Lessard, bassist for Dave Matthews Band, even lends his chops on album standout Burning Star.

In JINGLE BELL ROCKS!, director Mitchell Kezin delves into the minds of some of the world’s most legendary Christmas music fanatics and hits the road to hang with his holiday heroes – including hip hop legend Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons of RUN-D.M.C., The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne, filmmaker John Waters, bebopper Bob Dorough, L.A. DJ and musicologist Dr. Demento, and Calypso legend The Mighty Sparrow. In his search for the twelve best, underappreciated Christmas songs ever recorded, Kezin both asks and answers the question, “Why, when Christmas rolls around, are we still stuck cozying up with Bing Crosby under a blanket of snow?”


Equal parts social history, pop culture pilgrimage, and revealing character study, JINGLE BELL ROCKS! follows this motley crew of merry misfits as they confront the Christmas music mainstream, reinventing the seasonal soundtrack for the 21st century. With rollicking live performances, intimate interviews, and a kaleidoscope of touching and rare archive footage, JINGLE BELL ROCKS! is a cinematic sleigh-ride into the strange and sublime universe of alternative Christmas music. It’s also a mix-tape of twelve of the weirdest, wildest, most poignant Christmas songs you’ve never heard.

Both as a solo artist and as the Front man of Dark Hollow Bottling Company for the past 10 years Greg Klein has been a fixture in the Maine music scene.  Klein’s new project, GK and the Right of Way  blends rock, pop, folk and roots music.  GKROW plays lyrically driven songs that tell tales of love, loss, family, hopes and dreams.   The band is rounded out by Drew Wyman on bass, Chris Wilkes on drums and John Clavette on Keyboards and guitar.  GKROW released their first album, “Watching in My Mind” in September 2014 And has spent a few weeks in the top ten local sales at Bull Moose.   The album was recorded at Acadia Recording Company in Portland Maine, and was produced by Todd Hutchisen and mastered by Pat Keane.


“A realness of his character is explicit and believable” Kristen Dicara-McClellan of the Portland Press Herald


“Klein writes songs that are easy to quote in paragraphs, with phrases that hold your attention” Sam Pfeifle of the Portland Phoenix


*****

Gunther Brown is a four piece Americana band from Portland, Maine. Of their new new album, The Portland Phoenix said, Good Nights for Daydreams is "the most sorrowful local record since Ray Lamontagne's ‘Till the Sun Turns Black’". In predicting this January release as likely one of the top releases of all 2014, Portland Press Herald says Gunther Brown singer Pete Dubuc sounds like "a world-weary Steve Earle." As stellar reviews of Good Nights for Daydreams roll in, the album became the top local selling album, the band played two sold out CD release shows on the same night and local brewery, Funky Bow, released a signature Gunther Brown Ale. The band also released an official music video for the album's first single, Forever.


Having previously released two EPs, Good Nights for Daydreams is Gunther Brown's first full length album. The band was formed in 2007 with Dubuc and drummer, Derek Mills, as principals. Guitarist, Chris Plumstead, and bassist, Mark McDonough, would join up later. As personal styles meshed, the folk influences of Dubuc, marrying the rootsy blues rock influences of Plumstead, it became clear Good Nights for Daydreams would be a proper full length debut for the band.


Produced by Jonathan Wyman and mastered by Adam Ayan of Gateway Mastering, Good Nights for Daydreams also features guest vocals by Mister Moon. It was released, January 28th, 2014.


On stage, Gunther Brown has supported the likes of Eilen Jewell, Larkin Poe and Joe Pug.

Filmed for over a decade, MAGICAL UNIVERSE is a portrait of Al Carbee, an 88 year old strange and reclusive outsider artist who spends his days alone in a massive house in Maine creating art — mostly featuring Barbie Dolls in elaborate dioramas. The documentary profiles Carbee’s amazing body of work and his relentlessly creative lifestyle. Carbee’s story is explored through the prism of his unlikely friendship with New York filmmaker Jeremy Workman, who unexpectedly becomes Carbee’s closest friend and only link to the outside world. Far beyond just a portrait of an eccentric, MAGICAL UNIVERSE is about wonder, friendship, and the transcendent power of creativity. Its story culminates with Al Carbee’s greatest triumph as an artist and a man.

Brazilian Choro has been around for over a hundred years, but in this country itʼs virtually unknown. David Grisman, Mike Marshall and a handful of others have helped introduce the music and the musicians to a larger audience, but itʼs still largely under the radar of most music listeners...Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements of European folk and classical, ragtime, jazz, Latin, and African music creating a style that is uniquely Brazilian.


Based in Portland, Maine, Choro Louco are driven by their love of the music. They play monthly at Portlandʼs eclectic club Blue, and have appeared at Acoustic Artisans and Mayo Street Arts.


Members of Choro Louco come from diverse backgrounds and can be seen in various ensembles locally. Carl Dimow, flute and guitar, has played jazz, classical, and klezmer music here and abroad with the Casco Bay Tummlers, and numerous other ensembles. Nicole Rabata, flute, plays primarily celtic, classical and contemporary classical styles. Joel Eckhaus comes from an old time/jazz/pop/vaudeville background and has applied his knowledge of the ukulele to the Cavaquinho, Brazilʼs version of the uke. Kris Day plays with various bluegrass, rockabilly, and jazz bands in Portland. Eric LaPerna is best known for his percussion work with the middle eastern ensemble, Okbari, but has proven equally adept at Brazilʼs version of the tambourine, the pandeiro.
