Festival Express – Music in Film Talk

Hosted by Alysha Main Music Supervisor/DJ/Host of “Hamilton Film” Podcast

A series for true music lovers longing to immerse themselves in a big audiovisual experience with the greatest sonic moments ever captured on film.  Host Alysha Main will take the audience on a journey through the liner notes and deep cuts from the most beloved music documentaries.

In Part 1 of the series, we will revisit the heady era of 1969-1976, exploring the impact the music had on culture, and how it lives on in the context of our current society.  Above all, these nights are a celebration of the way music makes us feel, and how it connects us.  It gives us the chance to see legends like Janis Joplin, Ike & Tina Turner and Townes Van Zandt projected 50 feet tall, and to sing along together to our favourite soundtrack moments of all time.


In 1970, a train rocked and rolled across the Canadian countryside, carrying some of the world’s biggest bands: The Grateful Dead, The Band, Janis Joplin, and Buddy Guy, and more.  Cameras captured camaraderie and intimate jam sessions in between station stops on a five-day journey to play a festival mired by controversy.

Alysha Main is a Music Supervisor, DJ, and Podcaster who has been working in the entertainment industry for 20 years. Her career has taken her to Toronto, London, and Melbourne, working in Artist Management, Event Promotion, Sales, and Marketing.  She is the creator and host of the Hamilton Film podcast, documenting the local film industry.  In 2017 she shifted her focus to Music Supervision, studying at Berklee College of Music, and now works on film and TV projects in Canada and the USA.
