“Gram Parson: Fallen Angel” and Gram Parsons Tribute

September 19, 2006 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm EDT

On September 19, 1973, the musician and heir to a million-dollar fortune died under the influence of drugs and alcohol near his favorite place – the Joshua Tree National Monument in the Californian desert. As the founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers, a member of the hit-making legendary The Byrds, an important influence on the Rolling Stones and the man who catapulted Emmylou Harris to fame, Gram Parsons made music history in only a few years. Using rare footage of his performances, Gram Parson: Fallen Angel (2004) director Gandulf Hennig shows why Gram Parsons has become a legend. Interviewees include Keith Richards, Emmylou Harris, Chris Hillman and “Road Mangler” Phil Kaufman. Plus a live musical tribute featuring Micheal Eck (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Jeff Sohn (bass), Sten Isachsen (lead guitar), Kevin Maul (pedal steel and dobro), Bob Girouard (drums) and guest vocalists Leigh Gibson, Hayseed, Mother Judge, the Slaughter Jug All-Stars, members of the Ramblin’ Jug Stompers and other local musicians performing their favorite Gram Parsons songs!
