FILM SCREENING! As part of Co‑operatives Fortnight we’re holding a screening of the inspiring Canadian docu-film ‘A Silent Transformation’ about the power of co-operatives.
A Silent Transformation is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative model. The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective wellbeing in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this co-operative spirit is as critical as ever. However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood.Tickets & More Info »
House and Land (US, Thrill Jockey Records)
House and Land is the duo of Sally Anne Morgan (fiddle, shruti box, banjo, vocals) and Sarah Louise Henson (vocals, 12-string guitar, shruti box, bouzouki). Sally and Sarah started playing together after Sarah opened for The Black Twig Pickers for whom Sally plays the fiddle. The duo quickly discovered that they were both interested in the same very specific forms of traditional music.
