What do you get when you pack 10 Alaska Folk Festival bands and all the audio/video gear and people to shoot and record them into a 12-by-12-foot room at the Alaskan Hotel?
You get a series of one-song videos with bands like The Carper Family, Harrison B, Foghorn Stringband, Kim Beggs and the Bowties. Over the next three weeks, we’re releasing a series of Red Carpet Concerts from Folk Fest, a collaboration between KTOO Public Media, Juneau filmmaker Ryan Cortes and audio engineer Justin Smith.
To start, here is the San Francisco-based Bowties with “Houston Blues.”
Here are some of our other Red Carpet Concerts with musicians like Sean Tracey and Nate May, Dara Rilatos, Cousin Curtiss and Sophia Street. Check in on Wednesday for the release of Whisky Class with Liz Snyder and Patrick Troll.
