Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass production update

James Reams visited New York at the end of March to do some more work on his film Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass: Tales of the Early Days in Their Own Words.

He reports …..

Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass“I spent some time working with the editing crew on the Pioneers film.

We put together a short film trailer which captures the “man on the street” interviewing approach that I used when talking to these truly amazing musicians. People have seen lots of slick video productions about our music, but rarely do the viewers get to feel like they’re really there – a fly on the wall – listening to the stories and soaking up the advice.

I’ve had quite a few emails and other inquiries asking when the film will be ready so I just want to let everyone know that we’re on schedule for the planned release in late June.”
