luckyburden: songs & film

A documentary and a song-cycle, performed live, about silver-mining, love and mixed blessings in Keno City. Kim Barlow performs songs from her record, luckyburden, a song cycle about 20th century life in the silver mining towns of Keno City and Elsa, to old images of life there intercut with the story of long-time Keno resident, Mike Mancini and his family who immigrated to Canada from Italy in the 1950’s. Kim, myself and guitar hero Justin Haynes performed this show across Canada in 2004. Maybe you'll get to see it one day. For upcoming dates, check Kim's website:
