Afterglow

December 16, 2018

Since 2010 we have been working on a piece of cinema called Afterglow. Together with director Benny Vandendriessche and DOP Carlo Rottiers we created a short film that is The Golden Glows in another medium. Music and image are fully integrated. We’ve been working for ages on the soundtrack with a 22-piece orchestra and gorgeous otherworldly musical colors: lapsteel, conch shells, vibraphone, Ondes Martenot, female choir, bass clarinet, strings, brass…

The soundtrack premières tonight on radio Klara at exactly 21h13. Afterglow is also available on iTunes  and other digital platforms from today onwards.

We’re working hard at bringing the film to a silver screen near you.

A limited vinyl edition is in the making.

The Songbook of Harry Smith

April 16, 2018

In 2018 The Golden Glows have a concert residency at Ancienne Belgique. We’ve been asked by Belgium’s leading concert venue to introduce Harry Smith and The Anthology of American Folk Music to a wider audience.

The Songbook of Harry Smith is a monthly concert series of six, starting in May, ending in December 2018.

All this is leading up to an Harry Smith Tribute concert in March 2019 we’re creating with our dear friends Stray Dogs exclusively for AB.
