Interspersing conversation with lo-fi power point presentations and live music performance; three protagonists responsible for bringing American Interior to our screens, stereos, bookshelves and tablets will bring you the tale of John Evans on his search for a mysterious tribe of Welsh-speaking Native American Indians in 1792.
In the summer of 2012, over two hundred years later, Gruff Rhys – himself a distant relative of Evans - re- traced the explorer’s route through the heart of the continent by means of an “Investigative Concert Tour TM” - a series of solo gigs that saw him accompanied by little more than acoustic guitar, Power- Point presentation and a three-foot high felt avatar of John Evans.
Catryn Ramsut (ie ie Productions; producer), Nathan Hull (Penguin Books) and Gruff Rhys (musician) will bring you the tale while outlining how multiple rights holders (film, book, music and music publishers) came together to deliver this truly multi-platform project.
