Loaded with originals, the party spills out onto the Meadow as the sun sets, before ending up at dusk for a little Ron Hynes around the campfire. Heartwarming and deeply satisfying.

Quinte Film Alternative streams UNDINE

Director Christian Petzold brings us a modern romantic interpretation of a European myth. Undines are aquatic sprites who long to achieve human form. But they can only live as a human if loved by a man and that love bond cannot be broken or both face death. Petzold’s films feature strong women so this UNDINE (Paula Beer) may avoid her predestined fate by diligently pursuing a diver whose working world is her former home. (subtitled from German)

Lynne Hanson

Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She’s known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions. A closet stand-up comedian, Lynne often leaves the audience howling with laughter with her between-song-banter.
