Regent Theatre and The New England Americana Association present “Seeds of Sound Celebration,” a very special matinee roots concert event followed by an evening of films on the Regent’s big screen. Proceeds will go to the Regent Theatre equipment fund and the New England Americana Festival 2012.
Many acclaimed musicians and bands will be featured including W.C. Handy award-winning guitar virtuoso, Ronnie Earl in a rare solo acoustic performance, Comanchero, Sam Reid & The Riot Act, Jeff Byrd, and Arlington-based duo Adela & Jude.
In addition, on the big screen at 7:30pm, there will be a special 35mm screening of Murray Lerner’s “Festival”—a 1967 GRAMMY Award-Nominee for Best Feature Documentary (with historical performances for the 1963-65 Newport Folk Festivals). “Festival” will be preceded at 7pm by an exclusive 30-minute sneak preview of documentarian Beth Harrington’s “The Winding Stream,” with excerpts from her film-in-progress telling the remarkable story of the American roots music dynasty, the Carters and the Cashes.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase to patrons 21 and older with proper I.D. throughout the event, and food will be catered by the award-winning Blue Ribbon BBQ between the concert and film segments of the festival.
