Roscoe Holcomb: From Daisy Kentucky Directed
John Cohen USA / 2009 / 30 minutes SNEAK PEAK
SYNOPSIS: Film director and Holcomb friend, John Cohen — an accomplished musician and member of the band “New Lost City Ramblers” — will be joined by the Dustbusters to perform some of Holcomb’s timeless music following the Saturday screening.
John Cohen explores the life, philosophy and music of Eastern Kentucky banjo player, coal miner and construction worker Roscoe Holcomb. Holcomb has been injured on the job and forced into early retirement. He discusses his life and music and plays a number of traditional songs from his region. Using intimate footage of Holcomb at home as well as footage of his family, community and region, Cohen presents a remarkable and visually beautiful portrait of Roscoe Holcomb, a man who despite economic hardship and changing times has maintained a powerful and authentic personal music and philosophy.
John Cohen is a filmmaker, photographer and musician who has worked primarily in Appalachia and Peru. He has released sixteen musical documentaries and played for fifty years in The New Lost City Ramblers who toured the world and released more than thirty albums. Cohen was professor of photography and drawing at SUNY Purchase from 1972-97.
