Jóhann Jóhannsson to perform his score for The Miners’ Hymns live
Jóhann Jóhannsson is to perform his score for the silent documentary, The Miners' Hymns, live, with Belgian Brass at Sint-Maartens kerk in Kortrijk, Belgium.
The Miners' Hymns is a collaboration between American filmmaker Bill Morrison and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Made up of archive material from the BBC and the BFI, the film explores the social, cultural and political aspects of the dying mining industry, the ill-fated mining community and the strong regional tradition of Brass Bands in North East England. This special live performance is a collaboration between Theatre Kortrijk, Flanders Festival Kortrijk, The Groan, Belgian Brass, Buda Arts Centre and Youth & Music Kortrijk.
