The Groove Is Not Trivial
Local folk cellist, Jo Hooper presents a special screening and English premiere of The Groove is Not Trivial. One mans personal quest for self expression ignites a global movement toward cultural revival.
The Groove is Not Trivial is a feature documentary about master fiddler Alasdair Frasers personal journey in search of self expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse a groove a through-line from the past that sparks hopeful possibilities for the future. The irrepressible Fraser proves that the groove in traditional music transcends toe-tapping fun it can be a source of personal and political liberation.
‘Toe-tappingly beautiful, a brilliantly presented story of subversive empowerment.’
‘One of the finest documentaries on the theme of traditional music I have ever seen’.
