The Groove Is Not Trivial (NR)

Release date: June 18th, 2017

Run time: 1:00

Direction: Tommie Dell Smith

Genres: Documentary

Synopsis: For many years local musician Alasdair Fraser has been entertaining Nevada County music lovers with his incredible fiddle playing. Now we’re pleased to present the first local showings of a new documentary about Alasdair by Tommie Smith. It follows Alasdair’s personal journey in search of self expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse – a groove – that runs through his virtuosic performances with cellist Natalie Haas and his dynamic teaching at his wildly popular, freewheeling fiddle camps in California, Scotland, and Spain. With its stirring scenes of fiddle players of all ages playing their hearts out, the film shows that Alasdair is at the epicenter of a movement in which people are finding their own voices and a deep sense of community through the shared love and joy of music. Alasdair will be at the Thursday showing and director Tommie Smith and producer Kate Fritz will be at the Sunday showing which will have a later start at 8:00 to allow the streets to clear after the Bike Race.
