The Dodge Brothers have been announced as one of the special event headliners at this year’s Bradford International Film Festival in Partnership with Virgin Media, which runs from 19 - 29 April.
They will be joined on stage by one of the world’s best known silent-film accompanists, Neil Brand, to provide a live soundtrack for the classic silent film Beggars of Life (1928).
BIFF co-director Tom Vincent said: “BIFF has a long and much-enjoyed tradition of including live music as part of our annual celebration of cinema, and over the years audiences’ enthusiasm for these shows has grown and grown. We’re very excited to up the scale of these events in BIFF 2012 with the long-awaited first ever gig in the North of the country by The Dodge Brothers, plus the UK’s foremost piano accompanist Neil Brand.”
The Dodge Brothers will be playing guitars, harmonica, banjo, double bass and a washboard, with Brand on piano, in the National Media Museum’s renowned Pictureville cinema on 21 April.
