My compatriot Mark Orton – the one-man rhythm section and extraordinary melody-maker behind our band Tin Hat – has written a new score for Buster Keaton’s film The General, in celebration of it’s 90th birthday. We’ll be touring it up and down the coast of Oregon later this month, so come take a walk down memory lane with us as we perform the score live to film alongside Matthias Bossi, Todd Sickafoose and members of the Oregon Symphony. I think you’ll find that Keaton’s subject matter is no less relevant now than it was then.
