Synopsis: Suitable for all. “Our recent showings of “The Groove” were so successful that we’re bringing it back for one more showing. Music lovers turned out to fill Nevada City’s Nevada Theatre for two local premiere showings of “The Groove is Not Trivial.” Director Tommie Dell Smith’s new documentary on world renown fiddle player Alasdair Fraser brought audiences to their feet to applaud throughout the film’s final credits. Fraser, who lives in Nevada City, attended the opening night showing and expressed how meaningful it was to receive such an overwhelming response to the film. “The Groove” follows Fraser’s journey from his childhood in Scotland to his current efforts to revive Scottish cultural traditions through his multi-generational music camps. You don’t have to be a fiddle aficionado to love the “Groove” as Fraser’s freewheeling, joyful and inspiring personality encourages everyone to find their inner “groove” and to live life more fully.” –Mike Getz, Nevada Theatre Film Series. “Director Tommie Dell Smith says Alasdair is as thoughtful and deep as he seems, and her film shows as well how talented, dedicated, and fun this music man is.” –Chuck Jaffee, The Union.
