Blue Grassy Knoll Return from 2010 World Expo with an Old Favourite: Our Hospitality

By Staff

(MELBOURNE) After playing at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China, Blue Grassy Knoll return to Melbourne to play their last show for the year – an old favourite Our Hospitality on the 5 November 2010 at Melbourne Recital Centre.

Their original film score to Buster Keaton’s first feature film, has not been performed in Melbourne for 10 years, the last destination it played was at the Edinburgh Festival in 2000. Our Hospitality is Buster Keaton’s Romeo & Juliet comedy, in which Buster becomes involved in a hillbilly family feud in 1830s America. The film is also a family affair of his own, with wife Natalie and infant son, as well as his own father Joe Keaton appearing in the film. In true Keaton style, the non-stop rolling gags of the film are offset by the extraordinary grace he brings to acrobatic stunts including the climatic waterfall rescue – where he doesn’t use a double!

Blue Grassy Knoll’s original score to Our Hospitality, is rich in composition and sounds – and a brilliant showcase of craftsmanship and ingenuity. These incredible musicians become as much a part of the action as Buster in this marvellously clever and humorous film, with their performance live at the bottom of the projection screen.

Blue Grassy Knoll have defined a new sound with their cross-over from music to live film score, establishing a unique niche for themselves that sets them apart from any other Australian ensemble. Musicians Simon Barfoot, Gus Macmillan, Steph O’Hara, Philip McLeod, Mark Elton play their own film soundtrack without sheet music, taking their cues from the action on screen. With a broad pallet of instrumentations, their score fuses together styles of music from a headspinning range of traditions.

Blue Grassy Knoll are a 5 piece gypsy-bluegrass ensemble that formed in Melbourne in 1996. With a career spanning 14 years, they have created a body of work encompassing four feature-length live filmscores, five short live filmscores, have released 4 CDs, and have embarked on 15 international tours, performed at festivals on all 5 continents. In 2007 the band were commissioned by the Victorian Arts Centre to create a new score for the 1922 Chinese silent film Labourer’s Love, which toured to Beijing and Shanghai as part of the Australian Theatre Festival. They are currently composing the film score to a Chinese film called “Give You Some Colour” to premiere in Beijing in 2011.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Blue Grassy Knoll – Our Hospitality
7:30pm FRIDAY 5 NOVEMBER 2010
Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre
