"The Groove is Not Trivial" Documentary Screening

Sat, September 8, 2018, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Cloverdale filmmaker Tommie Dell Smith follows master fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s personal journey in search of self-expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse —a groove — that runs through his virtuosic performances with cellist Natalie Haas and his dynamic teaching at his wildly popular, freewheeling fiddle camps in California, Scotland, and Spain. At his gatherings around the world for musicians of all ages and abilities, ‘the groove’ is a through-line from the past that sparks hopeful possibilities for the future.

Director Tommie Dell Smith will be in attendance.


Before the feature, three student films from the 2018 Summer Film Camp will make their world debuts on the big screen. Student filmmakers will also be in attendance.
