Doc'n Roll MCR FF - Karen Dalton In My Own Time

Dir. Richard Peete and Robert Yapkowitch, 2020, USA, 85 min

Idolized by Bob Dylan and later by Nick Cave, Adele and Joanna Newsom, folk blues singer and guitarist Karen Dalton was a charismatic figure in the fertile music scene of 1960s New York. A reluctant live performer and a fiercely independent artist who fought against industry demands and directives, the Texas-born, Oklahoma-raised Dalton led a difficult and unconventional life until her premature death in 1993. Since most photographs and film footage of Dalton have been lost or destroyed, this long-awaited film draws on her recordings, and interviews with loved ones and collaborators, to build a rich portrait of a singularly gifted musician and her hauntingly beautiful voice - and a body of work that continues to grow in influence.

The Peer Hat will also be playing tunes by, and inspired by Karen Dalton after the screening of the wonderful ‘In My Own Time’ at HOME Mcr on Saturday 6th November!

Don’t miss this iconic film, about this iconic artist, and make sure you head down to the most iconic bar/venue in Manchester to listen to the iconic Karen Dalton (and other iconic artists)!
