#hollow the film
Today I interviewed the very talented banjo picker, Nessie Hunt of Premier Mountain. I have filmed Hunt at several performances throughout the summer and was very excited to sit down with her to chat and film her with her little boy, Jesse. Hunt’s husband, Ronnie, is a guitar player and roof bolter at a coal mine locally. The couple bonded over their love for music and continue to play as part of Blue Rockin Grass band and Alan Johnston’s South 52.
McDowell County native, Stacy Grubb, needs your help in recording her next album. Grubb is using Kickstarter to raise $15,000 in the next 59 days. She released her debut independent record, Hurricane, in April of 2009. Two singles from that project were officially released in Europe and Australia, both of which charted on several country charts and received good radio play.
“The recording and promotion of Hurricane have been 100% self-funded. My sound is generally described as too bluegrass for country and too country for bluegrass. On the bright side, there is a wonderful audience for my kind of music. Ironically, however, there is not much label support for it. Your contribution will help cover the cost of studio rental, the producer, photography and artwork related to the project, travel expenses, and mastering, pressing, and promotion of the project.”
Help out if you can!
