In 2010 Blue Grassy Knoll represented Australia at World Expo in Shanghai performing their score to the 1921 Chinese silent movie Labourer’s Love, and were a hit at the Brisbane International Arts Festival in 2011. They have been programmed as part of Arts Festivals, Music Festivals, Film Festivals, Comedy Festivals, Children’s Festivals and Senior Citizen’s events. Band members have also worked individually with many of Australia’s most prestigious bands, artists and companies as musicians, composers and sound designers in their own right.
In recreating the silent movie experience, the Blue Grassy Knoll perform their original music, live along with classic films by Buster Keaton. For over 19 years, they have performed around the world and continue to delight audiences with their compelling and humorous scores. Their sheer brilliance, inventiveness and musical humnour added the perfect touches to Keaton’s whimsical advntures. The Blue Grassy Knoll could not have scored the film any better. Avalon Sperring, DB. Nothing less than pure magic.
Blue Grassy Knoll are a 5 piece gypsy-bluegrass ensemble that formed in Melbourne in 1996. Original members were Steph O'Hara (violin, mandolin), Simon Barfoot (guitar, vocals, drums) Gus Macmillan (Banjo, Flute) Philip McLeod (accordion, cello, mandolin, harmonica) and Alex Miller (double bass). A turning point for the band came in 2007 when they were commissioned by the Victorian Arts Centre to create a new score for the 1922 Chinese silent film Labourer’s Love, which toured to Beijing and Shanghai as part of the Australian Theatre Festival. They found themselves reinvigorated by success of this project, as well as the following Australian performances at the Westgarth Film Festival and 2007-2008 Woodford Folk Festival, and the company have resumed their career as an ongoing venture.
