Hot damn! It’s the Soggy Bottom Boys!
In one of the few bright spots of 2020, the principal cast of the Coen brothers’ 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? is reuniting online this October. A tribute to the film is slated as part of this year’s Nashville Film Festival, featuring a discussion with George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson. The tribute will also feature musical performances from Chris Thomas King, Carlene Carter, and Dan Tyminski, who provided Clooney’s singing voice in the film.
The event is meant to highlight both the film’s 20th anniversary and the effect the film’s soundtrack had on raising awareness of folk and bluegrass music, especially as the soundtrack won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2002.
The event is free for Nashville Film Festival passholders. If you’d just like to view the event, tickets are available for $12 on the Film Festival site. The tribute will be available to watch from Oct. 1 through Oct. 7.
