FreshScores: Stephane Wrembel - FreshGrass

Original live score performed to A Trip to the Moon by Georges Méliès (1902)

story FreshGrass is proud to present the fruits of the second year of our FreshScores commissioning programming: some of our favorite FreshGrass artists performing live original scores to classic short films, which we have commissioned them to write.

Gypsy jazz / hot swing guitar phenom Stephane Wrembel is no stranger to music for film — his credits include the closing track and other contributions to Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, with whom he’s a frequent collaborator. Here he brings his Django-esque playing to French compatriot Georges Méliès’ 1902 classic. Based on stories by Jules Verne, we’re pretty sure FreshGrass is the only music festival pairing bluegrass with science fiction.
