Heartworn Highways – 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.


The music speaks for itself in this performance documentary that highlights some of the biggest names within the outlaw country movement in Texas and Tennessee in the mid-seventies.  Rather than follow in the tradition of the previous generation, songwriters like Guy and Susanna Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, and Rodney Crowell formed their own country-folk community, working outside the confines of the Nashville establishment.

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.
