A Film by Glenda Drew and Jessie Drew

Open Country is a journey into the roots of American Country music, reclaiming it as the creative musical expression of working people of all colors. Through archival clips, contemporary interviews, performances, and animated graphics, Open Country repositions country music into its rightful place as a people’s music. This film features interviews with Billy Bragg, Mat Calahan, Keith Cary, Davey D, Ryan Davidson, Hazel Dickens, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Alkali Flats, Bairbre Flood, Archie Green, Gerald Haslam, Toshio Hirano, Roger Knox, Jon Langford, Hannah Mayree, Morgan McDow, George Metesky, Yvonne Moore, Pete Seeger, Utah Phillips and Hilary Woodruff.

The filmmakers Glenda Drew and Jesse Drew are longtime advocates for grassroots community media, and have been involved locally in Davis with the initial launch of KDRT community radio and with many initiatives for Davis Media Access.  We are thrilled to be partnering with them and the Davis Odd Fellows for this screening event Sunday, March 10 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.  More information is available  at their website Open Country.

We are very grateful that this event will also serve as a fundraiser for our grassroots radio station KDRT.  The filmmakers state "We are offering the film to community organizations, down-home music venues, alternative film spaces, union halls, and grassroots projects as a means to spread the word and to help you generate some funds and resources to continue doing the good work you do."
