Tracing the path of the Colorado River, water tells the story of the American Southwest. Ben Barron gives it it’s song.
The Colorado River has carved a deep imprint on both the physical landscape of the American Southwest, and on the people who live near its waters. Musician Ben Barron of the Infamous Flapjack Affair will discuss the trip he and his bandmates took to traverse this endangered river system, and to write music inspired by the people who rely on it, captured in their award-winning film Confluence. Join him for behind-the-scenes storytelling, live music, film excerpts, and a discussion of the places that shape us and the joys and challenges of making music with a purpose.
