with Danny Wilcox Frazier
April 1, 2016 at 3PM
Iowa City, Iowa
Documentary photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier and Minneapolis-based indie-roots band, The Pines, will hold a special event on Friday, April 1, at Iowa City’s independent theater, FilmScene at 3pm. The Pines will perform live as Frazier’s decade of work from the Midwest and Great Plains is projected. Then, Frazier will take the stage with The Pines’ David Huckfelt, Benson Ramsey and Alex Ramsey. The musicians and photographer will discuss the inspiration for their work and collaboration. Following the FilmScene event, The Pines will perform at the Englert Theatre where Frazier’s work will screen during the concert.
The collaboration between transcendental folk band The Pines and acclaimed Iowa photographer & filmmaker Danny Wilcox Frazier begins with the cover for The Pines new EP, “Pasture: Folk Songs”. “Pasture” explores the concepts of past & future through a Midwestern lens, with folk songs old and new and Frazier’s compelling photography creating a seamless thread in music and image. Danny Wilcox Frazier’s work focuses on marginalized communities across America, including his native Midwest & Iowa, home to The Pines as well. The intersection of The Pines vivid soundscapes and Frazier’s portrayal of small-town life is the intersection of the Midwest itself, caught between a fading past and an uncertain future. Negative space, intimacy with tradition & heritage in a changing world, and the preservation of human spirit are strong themes mingled on the plains and the prairie. -Red House Records
