Old Firehouse in Edom Hosts Music, Film Series
Beginning its fifth season of entertainment, The Old Firehouse in Edom will feature Bill Ward in its acoustic concert series on September 21, and the first 2013-14 independent film screening of “The Playroom” on September 28.
My Texas Music says “Bill Ward’s use of folk, pop, and rock rhythms are a symphony of intrigue and emotion. Ward steps to the plate with this CD and touches all the bases.”
“The Playroom,” an official selection of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, is a coming-of-age drama about the fine line between childhood and adulthood. Set in the suburbs during the 1970s, the story unfolds like a dream wrapped around a family drama, one in which all members of the Cantwell family struggle to find their way in a rapidly changing world. Texas director-producer of the film, Julia Dyer, and actress Alexandra Doke, who appears in the film, will be present for a question and answer session at the conclusion of the screening.
Future concerts and films will be scheduled each month through May; the schedule is at www.theoldfirehouse.net. Admission prices for concerts are typically $12 in advance and $15 and the door, and films range between $8-$10. All events are on Saturday evenings, with concerts beginning at 7:30 p.m. and movies at 7 p.m.
