Last Waltz Revisited DVD Screening
As part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival we took part in "The Last Waltz Revisited".
It was a chance to re-imagine one of the greatest rock ﬁlms ever. The Last Waltz‚ was a farewell concert from The Band, recorded on Thanksgiving Day, 1976. The event was a checklist of roots, rock and Americana, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Muddy Waters, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood and Dr John.
It marked the demise of the original Band line-up, an emotional goodbye after 16 years on the road. Songs like The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, The Weight‚ and It Makes No Difference‚ still resonate across popular music.
On the night, we played alongside some brilliant artists including Jackson Cage, Katie Richardson, Ten Gallon Hat, John Shelley and the Creatures and the BBCs Gerry Anderson.
Luckily, the whole event was captured on video! So this will be the first screening of the show. You can also get your hands on a copy of the dvd! The show will be held at the Oh Yeah Centre on Monday 24th August at 8pm. Admission is free.
