After seeing them live at the Winter Roots and Blues Roundup, you can see Shovels and Rope on the big screen at Metro Cinema for the Canadian premiere of Jace Freeman’s intimate documentary about the band. The Ballad of Shovels and Rope captures the tours and detours of a husband and wife, Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst from Charleston, South Carolina who comprise the American folk duo, as they create and release the critically acclaimed album, O’ Be Joyful. From working for tips to becoming “Emerging Artist of the Year,” the two-man family band uses ingenuity and hard work to create something out of nothing.
