The Grahams
Join us for a unique Roots-Country-Americana, Music & Cinema experience with The Grahams, as they screen their documentary film ‘Rattle the Hocks’ and perform live music from their new album ‘Glory Bound’.

‘Rattle The Hocks’, chronicles The Grahams’ train-bound excursions and the influence of train travel on American roots music. They rode streamlined rails, jumping aboard almost all the Amtrak cars including the Adirondack Line, the Texas Eagle and the Sunset Limited, crisscrossing the country as the America that informs their songs whizzed by. “There is a special connection between American folk music and the railroad that has no parallel elsewhere in the world. Rail lines stitch together the sprawling fabric of American song. As writers of Americana music, our goal is to draw on the deep, recurring sources of American folk culture, giving them new shape.”

Lifelong couple, both romantic and musical, Alyssa and Doug Graham have been performing together since they were teenagers. The release of their debut in 2013 saw them play over 100 shows in support of ‘Riverman’s Daughter’, which spent 11 weeks in the Top 40 Americana Radio. No strangers to the media, they have appeared on Woodsongs, ABC TV and CBS Morning, and have been critically acclaimed by American Songwriter, USA Today and the New York Times.

Highly recommended!
