The Carter Family Family Show at The Hideout
If you missed your chance to see Neo alums Chloe Johnston and Joe Dempsey (along with Emmy Bean) in The Carter Family Family Show last January, then pay attention:
Written by Emmy Bean, Joe Dempsey, and Chloe Johnston, Directed by Chloe Johnston
A.P. Carter. Maybelle Carter. Sara Carter. The original family of country music. In the 1920s and 30s, audiences across the country huddled around the radio to listen to classic harmonies of well-loved songs such as “I’m Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes,” “Can the Circle be Unbroken,” and “Wildwood Flower” being broadcast from a Mexican radio station just across the border. The songs they sang only hinted at the romantic travails and musical adventures that the singers lived. The Neo-Futurists present three solo pieces inspired by the lives of these musical pioneers, featuring a different musical guest every night.
Featuring: Emmy Bean, Joe Dempsey, and Chloe Johnston
Musical Guest: Jeremy David Miller of Rambos
Jeremy David Miller says it has taken him thirty years to write his first record, Lepus. Thirty years of learning wordplay, thirty years of melding melodies, thirty years of observing. Now as Miller steps up to the mic he is ready to pronounce, “I am here and this is what I’m saying.”
