See Hear Podcast episode 44 - Interview with Chris Franklin, director of "Chris Wilson: Live At The Continental"
Hello everybody…….See Hear episode 44 here…..
Every music scene has its local heroes….those musicians who are a well-kept secret from the rest of the world, but gig goers wish more people knew about them. Melbourne film-maker Chris Franklin has made it his mission to document musicians in his local scene. Bernard was absent, but Tim and Maurice invited Chris to talk about his latest short film in adherence to that mission, “Chris Wilson – Live At The Continental”.
Melbourne musicians Chris Wilson and Shane O’Mara along with pianist Jex Saarelaht released a beloved album in 1994 called “Live At The Continental”. (The Continental Café’ was a favourite haunt for the best local and international songwriters and musicians). Franklin shows Chris and Shane recalling the circumstances behind that album, but ended up putting together something more broad and substantial. Even if you don’t know who they are, their commonality to any musician is the great art that is created when honesty, humour and trust overrides commercial success for its own sake. Every city around the world that celebrates its local musicians has its own Chris and Shane.
Tim and Maurice were extremely grateful to have Chris Franklin take the time to talk about this wonderful short film, and hope you find the conversation enjoyable.
