About the Event

This  show is a being presented in collaboration with Beehive Production's   mini-doc-style film series, featuring the creative community of  independent roots music! These 10-15 minute pieces feature a combination  of live music performance and interviews with both up-and-coming  artists and established veterans as well as in-depth looks at some of  the venues and festivals and creators that make up the vibrant fabric of  this genre. Ana Egge For the first time in a  career with many highlights (including recordings with Steve Earle and  Ron Sexsmith), Egge gave herself over to a co-writing/collaborative  process, working with Danish indie band The Sentimentals to write and  record the songs on “Say That Now” in Copenhagen. Egge’s signature blend  of American prairie folk mixed with clarion-call country shines  through. On “Promises to Break,” their combined voices rise in glorious  church-steeple harmony. It’s a song Egge and Hansen wrote together that  speaks to the universality of forbidden love: “On my shoulder’s my  hometown I’m trying to escape / On my hand is the number for calling  your name / It’s a matter of leaving before my lies come true / Before  my hometown finds out about you.” Hansen’s subsequent song “He’s a  Killer Now” is a heart-rending meditation on the kind of terrorism  currently gripping Europe, looking at the tragic deaths in a 2015 Danish  shooting from a mother’s perspective. “Away We Go Again” is Egge’s  attempt to grapple with the shock of Michael Brown’s tragic death and  the Ferguson protests. With good friends and loving family around them,  Ana Egge & The Sentimentals found the space to create an album  that looks both inward to the human journey and outward to the  communities we build to survive this trip.
