In this intimate portrait of an iconic seabird species, filmmaker Judy Irving  follows a wayward, starving California brown pelican from her “arrest” on the Golden Gate Bridge into care at a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and from there explores pelicans’ nesting grounds, Pacific coast migration and survival challenges.

The film is about wildness: How close can we get to a wild animal without taming or harming it? Why do we need wildness in our lives, and how can we protect it? Pelican Dreams stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and “Morro” (a backyard pelican with an injured wing), as well as the wildlife professionals who care for them.

Pelican Dreams (Rated G, 80 min.)

A pianist as well as a conductor, Wachs’ performance with the Minnesota Orchestra “proved a revelation, delivering a technically impeccable, emotionally powerful performance of two Mozart piano concertos and a pair of solo works,” raved the St. Paul Pioneer Press. With the encouragement of Zubin Mehta, Wachs began his studies with the late Enrique Barenboim in Tel Aviv before pursuing studies at the Zürich Academy and graduating from The Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School. He has also participated at such festivals at Aspen, Tanglewood and Verbier. Wachs has also been entrusted with preparing orchestras for Valery Gergiev to Vladimir Spivakov, and has served as Assistant Conductor to Osmo Vänskä at the Minnesota Orchestra and at the National Orchestra of France under Kurt Masur. Additionally, he has served as cover conductor for the Houston Symphony and the Rotterdam Philharmonic.

Tim Weed's hometown birthday concert! "Tim can play everything from hardcore bluegrass to Bach," says David Grisman. "He's the Ali Akbar Khan of the banjo."

Weed's music has been featured on National Public Radio. His band of acoustic virtuosos are "musical innovators who traverse genres and defy boundaries. Their exciting improvisation and dazzling interplay epitomize what great live music is all about -- an experience not to be missed!" (Rhythm & Roots)

Tim will be joined by Tobias Roberson on percussion, Sascha Jacobsen on acoustic bass, Debbie Daly on vocals, guitar and percussion, and surprise guests.

"Tim's multifaceted playing brings unusual influences together, from old-time flamenco with Eastern spices. It's a tasty blend!" -Peter Rowan

Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century.
Since its beginning in 1997, each of Tin Hat’s six recordings has been regarded by listeners and fellow musicians as a benchmark in the ongoing exploration of vibrant new pathways in acoustic music. Concurrently, their captivating live performances throughout the United States and Europe have surprised and delighted audiences with well-honed compositions and the joy of spontaneous musical discovery. Hailed for “interweaving Old World Europe with post-modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves” (The New York Press), the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device. As the New York Times notes, “it’s solid, appealing and fresh.”
