Rhiannon Giddens in Nashville

A few weeks ago, we completed our last music scene, working with Rhiannon Giddens in Nashville. She is a Grammy Award–winning violinist, vocalist and banjo player, and a founding member of African-American folk interpreters Carolina Chocolate Drops. Her recent solo debut was produced by T Bone Burnett, and is called TOMORROW IS MY TURN. We are very pleased that Rhiannon contributed a tune to our production, with the guidance and accompaniment of Dirk Powell.

Ten Thousand Charms

This hymn of praise first came to my ears through a version sung by western singer Martha Scanlon.  Beautiful!  Here, Dirk Powell’s daughters Amelia (age 16) and Sophie (age 13) bring the song to life under a 400-year-old Live Oak tree in the deep south. Also on board for the final stretch… Director of Photography David Wright and longtime colleague and second DP/Producer/Sound man Darryl Czuchra. Fantastic!

Louisiana Musician Dirk Powell

Filmed last week with Dirk Powell in Louisiana, a legendary instrumentalist and musician who has won four Grammy awards. Dirk has a powerful love for the outdoors, his daughters Amelia and Sophie, and their future on this changing planet. Here, he sings his own song, WATERBOUND.   Besides assisting as BEHOLD THE EARTH’s song composer and music advisor, Dirk is a creative and overall good soul!

Nashville filming with Corina Newsome

We spent two days filming with Corina at the Nashville Zoo, whom we met through the group Young Evangelicals for Climate Action. Wow! Author Richard Louv (“Last Child in the Woods”) might think about re-titling his book to (“First Child in the Woods”). Corina told me of growing up in an inner city black neighborhood where her primary exposure to native wildlife was her close observations of the slugs (terrestrial gastropod molluscs) on the shaded brick walls of her building. She identified her first native bird, a blue jay, when she was 19 and in college. Today, she is a passionate and knowledgeable zookeeper. She is also a public educator, a musician, a creation care activist, and a member of a bible study group in Nashville. In this photo, Corina visits with a kangaroo with Quentin Dickerson, a friend and one of the pastors at her church.
