“Blaze”: The Carroll County Premiere

August 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Join us on August 30th at 7pm at the Carrollton Center for the Arts for the Carroll County premiere of the 2018 independent film “Blaze,” based on the life of country music legend Blaze Foley who once lived in a tree house in Roopville with script co-writer and Whitesburg resident Sybil Rosen. The film, directed by actor and filmmaker Ethan Hawke, debuted to critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival and now comes home to Carroll County, where Foley began writing songs after meeting Rosen in 1975 at Banning Mill, at the time a quasi-artist colony. Blaze Foley is best known for his songs “If I Could Only Fly” and “Clay Pigeons,” covered by the likes of Willie Nelson, John Prine, and Merle Haggard. Foley was once Michael David Fuller, an aspiring but aimless musician who came to 1970s countercultural Carroll County after working as a roadie for the band Buzzard’s Roost, who nicknamed him “Depty Dawg.” It was during Foley’s time living with Rosen in a makeshift platform in the woods of Roopville that he christened himself Blaze Foley and began writing the songs that would one day make him a legend. “Blaze” is rated R for language throughout, some sexual content and drug use. The premiere will be followed by a Q&A with Sybil Rosen.
Screening sponsored by Underground Books.
