Fanning the Fire -- Fanning the Fire shows us how a young Texas teen followed his dreams from being a fan of bluegrass music all the way to taking the stage to open for some of the greatest entertainers in the business - in less than three years.
Along the way we see why people young and old get hooked on playing this music and enjoying companionship at festivals around the world. We also enjoy behind-the-scenes visits with master musicians from the USA and Europe and hear how they came to appreciate this uniquely American form of music and why it has broad appeal to beginning players and professionals alike.
The film features Lucas White s story along with interview and live performance footage of legendary bluegrass musicians including Dan Tyminski (of Alison Krauss & Union Station), J. D. Crowe, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Adam Steffey, Claire Lynch, Dudley Connell, and so many more. Fanning the Fire gives us a fast-moving look at where bluegrass music has come from and where it s going.
Without even knowing it, you've probably heard bluegrass superstar Dan Tyminski from his stint as George Clooney's singing voice in the film O' Brother, Where Art Thou? Check out his new video WHEELS.
