O Brother, Where Aren’t Thou?


Author(s):
Abstract:
Over the past 15 years there has been a renewed interest in traditional music. The Coen brothers’ film, O Brother Where Art Thou? (2001), and the film’s soundtrack are credited with this rise in popularity. The band from the film, The Soggy Bottom Boys, headlined the fourth meeting of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s festival in Raleigh, NC. The festival has seen an increase in turnout and a more diverse audience as a result of the film’s lasting impact and modern folk-inspired acts like the Avett Brothers.
