Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait
May 20, 2021 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Bing Concert Hall - Map Link
Jenny Scheinman, a violinist, fiddler, singer/songwriter, and the project’s conceptual director, writes and performs original and archival Americana Roots music that stirs deep yearnings to return to a simpler time. Working with filmmaker and director Finn Taylor (The Darwin Awards, Cherish, Dream with the Fishes), her project Kannapolis features archival film from the Great Depression by H. Lee Waters to weave a compelling narrative of a time long past. Themes of family, community, and hands-on industry underscored by labor songs and fiddle tunes resonate with fresh meaning in modern times.
