Lily Keber: Documentary Filmmaker (New Dates!)

Arts Council of Tamworth welcomes Louisiana documentary filmmaker Lily Keber for a weeklong residency at the K.A. Brett School and a screening of her award winning movie Bayou Maharajah, about the life and music of New Orleans piano legend James Booker.  

We’ll also have an exciting piano concert given by Henry Butler an eclectic New Orleans jazz & blues musician now hailing from Brooklyn, New York.

Please note, Lily’s residency has been rescheduled from March to May, which allows us to utilize the historic Barnstormers Theatre we all know and love!  Please save the date, Thursday May 17, 2018, for Henry Butler's piano performance, and a screening of Lily’s award winning documentary film Bayou Maharajah.

Lily will spend a week in residence at the KA Brett School, teaching the kids about documentary film techniques and storytelling, and diving into personal histories through lights, camera and action!
