Fusebox Talks Series “Chewing the Fat”: Andrew Dinwiddie & Kevin Nutt
With our ongoing partnership with the Fusebox Festival, we present Fusebox Talks Series “Chewing the Fat”: Andrew Dinwiddie & Kevin Nutt, discussing Get Mad at Sin in April at Fusebox Fest in Austin. Dinwiddie’s show will next be seen at Portland’s TBA Festival in September.
Kevin Nutt is a life-long devotee and collector of obscure, eccentric and original sacred and spiritual music from the southern United States. He hosts WFMU’s Sinner’s Crossroads, a radio show featuring “scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin’, a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.” The show is consistently excellent; you should download or podcast it from www.wfmu.org or via iTunes. Kevin runs the record label CaseQuarter Records, which has released new recordings and historical collections of music by Elder Utah Smith, The Spiritualaires of Hurtsboro Alabama, Isaiah Owens and the Reverend Charlie Jackson. Kevin is also the archivist for the Archive of Alabama Folk Culture, a collaborative project of the Alabama Folklife Association, the Alabama Center for Traditional Culture and the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
Andrew Dinwiddie is a performer, creator, curator and administrator. He has presented many short works of dance and theater in various New York City venues, and two full-evening pieces, The Accursed Items in 2008 and Get Mad at Sin! in 2010. He is a performer with and the administrative director of David Neumann / Advanced Beginner Group, and has performed with other terrific dance and theater makers, including Big Dance Theater, Ivy Baldwin, Karinne Keithley, Sibyl Kempson, Richard Maxwell and Chris Yon. With Jeff Larson, he curates a bi-monthly performance series called Catch, which perhaps most famously collaborated with Neal Medlyn and Brendan Kennedy to present WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!!, an evening of performance discussed, for better or worse, in the first google hit for the words “Kanye” and “pork.”
