Make your plans to pack a picnic, a blanket and chairs, and head to Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden for an evening under the stars, with live music and a movie, by the light of the moon in this one of a kind art environment.
Voted SXSW Best of Fest, “The Winding Stream” will be showing outdoors at Paradise Garden in Pennville the evening of September 28, following live music while the sun sets, with Sam Wheelock.
This award-winning documentary tells the dramatic tale of the Carters, the Cashes and their impact on the course of country music, in a 90-minute music documentary produced and directed by Beth Harrington. “Part history, part family saga, the film highlights a who’s who of country music including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, The Carolina Chocolate Drops and more”- Harrington.
Sam Wheelock will be kicking things off performing his eclectic mixture of original music, and fresh arrangements of traditional songs, with a little music history lesson on the side. All keeping with an eclectic southern Appalachian theme.
