About the Event

This  show is presented in collaboration with Beehive Production's  Ear-to-the-Ground 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. Billy Wylder “A spiritual cousin to Paul Simon’s Graceland” –Seven Days From  the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem to  the dunes of the Sahel Desert all the way to Carnegie Hall, music has  been the thread and source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band  features Avi Salloway from Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi; Celia joined  by an inspired cast of top-notch musicians who have performed in over  twenty five countries. Over the last three years, Salloway has toured  the globe, performing with Bombino, the Tuareg guitar virtuoso from  Niger, Africa and is now bringing new and old songs to life with the  Wylder family. Billy Wylder, like their peers, the David Wax  Museum and Rubblebucket, bring sounds from around the globe to meld with  their American roots, taking the listener on a journey from bayou to  borough, desert to dreamland. Wylder’s on a soul journey, singing songs  with the people he meets, songs of love and adventure, filled by the  color of his footsteps.
