Ashland Coffee and Tea, the listening room near the railroad tracks in
downtown Ashland, VA, feels like a second home to filmmaker Tom Weber,
whose documentary Troubadour Blues screens there Wednesday, Dec. 5.
“So many important scenes in the movie happened in that room,” says
Weber, a Pennsylvanian who spent 10 years collecting material for the feature-length
film. “I filmed Peter Case there on my very first weekend of shooting, back
in October 2002. I got the film’s title from a song that Mark Erelli had just written
when he opened for Chris Smither that following spring.”
Summer always goes by so quickly. Before you know it, the Halloween decorations are showing up in the stores and the smell of cider is in the air. Here at Troubadour Blues, we’ve got some exciting distribution news to announce in the not too distant future. Meanwhile, a few more screenings on the schedule and some spiffy new flyers to show off.[ Read More → ]
