We are excited to share via video stream two of our first documentaries celebrating two rich traditions and communities in the American South.
Shine On: Richard Trice and the Bull City Blues and Go Fast, Turn Left: Voices from Orange County Speedway are available for rent and purchase on Vimeo.
Dalsheimer and Hysjulien have captured the memory of one man’s experience. And in doing so, they salute not the heroes of the blues, but the hundreds of players who never made it big, yet nonetheless made it real.
– Roberta Penn, Independent Weekly
Shine On is well rounded and intimate portrait of Trice and a rich chronicle of his apprenticeship during a unique time and place in American musical history. Recommended for all music collections.
– Library Journal, May 2000
Like a driver finding ‘the groove’ on a race track, Go Fast, Turn Left accomplishes a great deal in a very short time and leaves the viewer wanting more. The fastest three eighths-mile track in the South has finally received the kind of recognition it deserves.
– Southern Cultures, Spring 1999
“Most fans will enjoy the great vintage home movies of early races, the lively music, and insightful views into the world of small town racing. Recommended for public libraries, especially in southern states.
