4:00pm-6:00pm

2118 Taliaferro Hall

  Heartworn Highways (dir. James Szalapski, 1976) documents variants of American country music that blossomed in reaction to the 'Nashville sound' -- which was being decried by purists as fake and mass-produced by the mid-1970s. The film follows several musicians writing and performing in various locations between Nashville and the Texas Hill Country, from sub-genres of country music such as Outlaw and Country-Funk. There is no voice-over narration, which made the film useful as a primary source to subsequent country music documentaries. Heartworn Highways is also a documentary repository for the strong regional accents native to the Deep South and Texas at that time.    

In order to help us estimate attendance, RSVP at millercenter@umd.edu or call at 301-405-4299
