HOW THEY GOT OVER
3:30pm doors / 4:00pm film
The story of how African American gospel quartets like the Soul Stirrers, Dixie Hummingbirds and the Blind Boys developed a spirit and style that were hugely influential on early rock and roll. Director Robert Clem’s revealing documentary explores the geography of recording in the 1940s and 50s, giving us a breadth of information that has gone overlooked in the years since these distinguished groups changed the trajectory of music.
