Homemade Hillbilly Jam
One of my most favoritest bands in the whole world is Big Smith. Named after the famous brand of overalls, Big Smith gave me more fun nights out than any other single entity of my college days, with the possible exception of my fraternity.
Anyway, a documentary filmmaker created a 80 min. movie detailing the family history of the men of Big Smith and it’s titled, “Homemade Hillbilly Jam.” It’s a fantastic showing of the music and cultural influences handed down through generations in the Ozark Mountains.
This played for the first time Thursday night here in St. Louis, though it’s been shown around the world in all sorts of film festivals. If you get a chance and if the show comes to your town, definitely check it out!
