FFF (Film Festival Fun)
The Newport Film Festival is in full swing, and I actually got to see a film tonight!! Press On is a wonderful documentary about the pedal steel artist Robert Randolph. Once again, a documentary has shown me a world of music I've never seen. The enthusiasm and talent of these artists was amazing, and the culmination of success to performing at the Grammy's was heartwarming. Keep your eye out for this young man, his music is a pleasure. After the film Randolph's mentors, Calvin Cook and Ted Beard, performed. I met these gentlemen a few days ago and their charming personalities really came through in their music.
