Dixie’s Land

17/09/2020

Back in 2010, Ryan Kelley of Intersection Films asked us if we would contribute our treatment of “Dixie’s Land” to be the opening of the film documentary that Ryan and his partner, Trent Reeves, were making about the classic Dan Emmett song. We were flattered to be so considered and of course readily agreed. We rendezvoused with the film-makers during the July Gettysburg reenactment that year and filmed our all-acoustic, all-authentic period instrument version. It took quite a while for Intersection to get the piece completed, but in 2017 they were finally able to get it screened on various individual PBS and other TV broadcast stations across the country, as well as in various college and university settings. Intersection Films’ “Dixie” is an interesting and entertaining piece – clearly relevant in today’s turbulent and politically charged atmosphere.
