Description: A trio of masters of Bluegrass & Old-Time Country String-music play a live, original, specially-composed score, bringing new life to the Hollywood Silent Movies of a long-gone era. ‘Beggars Of Life’, presented by Kate Lissauer (Buffalo Gals), Jason Titley & Leon Hunt, takes a thrilling, moving & witty approach to this legendary film, starring iconic actress Louise Brooks. In an absorbing, poignant glimpse of a bygone time, evocative, live music is punctuated with humour to reawaken the work of filmmaker William Wellman. Premiering in 2020 it was declared "a treat indeed...a high octane event"
