This is one woman's story of being traditional, never conventional.

Harmonize your evening entertainment and catch You Gave Me A Song: The Life and Music of Alice Gerrard, screening at the Sequoia in conjunction with this live show.

You Gave Me A Song offers an intimate portrait of old-time music pioneer Alice Gerrard and her remarkable, unpredictable journey creating and preserving traditional music. The film follows eighty-four year old Gerrard over several years, weaving together verité footage of living room rehearsals, recording sessions, songwriting, archival work, and performances with photos and rare field recordings. Much of the film is told in Alice’s voice and via interviews with musical collaborators and family members who share the story of Alice and others chasing that high lonesome sound.
