Join us for an evening of great musical talent as we listen tothe Nuremberg, Germany band Buddy and the Huddle perform their soundtrack to Cormac McCarthy's novel "Suttree". The performance will be accompanied by text excerpts from the novel, digital images of the Southeastern United States as captured by the band during their travels, and images captured by Swiss photographer Annemarie Schwarzenbach.
In cooperation with the University of Tennessee Knoxville, we have dedicated the month of October to viewing the southeastern United States through the lens of Europeans. Buddy and the Huddle read the McCarthy novel and felt inspired to write music. The novel takes place in Knoxville in 1951 as the main character gives up a life of privilege to become a fisherman on the Tennessee River. The story touches on themes of poverty, racism, and identity.
This evening will be one to sit back, relax, enjoy, great music, great company and to be inspired in the beautiful Synchronicity Theater.
