Big Ears Presents Suttree’s Knoxville: A Hymn to the Past in Film & Music

July 8, 2021 @ 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. |

The Big Ears Festival will hold a free summer concert on the main lawn at Lakeshore Park called “Suttree’s Knoxville: A Hymn to the Past in Film & Music.” The outdoor multimedia experience features Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound (TAMIS)’ film footage and photographs from Knoxville in the 1950s to create a 70-minute silent film that mirrors the scenes, places and character of Cormac McCarthy’s iconic novel, “Suttree.” The film will be projected onto a 40-foot-wide screen and scored live by musicians, including Knoxville’s inaugural poet laureate RB Morris with guitarist Greg Horne and bassist Daniel Kimbro; jazz singer and ukulele player Kelle Jolly with saxophonist Will Boyd; balladeer, guitarist, and folklorist Jake Xerxes Fussell; and guitarist and composer Bill MacKay with banjo player and old-time music expert Nathan Bowles. Morris will read key passages from the novel.

The music will start at 8 p.m.; the film with live score will begin at 9 p.m. just as the sun is setting.
