    beat beweging Later in 1967 vervoegde hij Ferre Grignard in Antwerpen om er gedurende drie decennia de folkscène in Europa te beheersen en het publiek te begeesteren De film van Patrick Ferryn is een uit het hart gegrepen documentair portret van een uitzonderlijk gevoelig mens helemaal uit de wereld van Jack Kerouac gestapt met een zeldzaam charisma De realisatie van deze film een avontuur dat zeven jaar duurde was enkel mogelijk dank zij de belangloze inzet van enkelen die erin geloofden met het doel hulde te brengen aan deze bij het grote publiek illustere onbekende die evenwel bij de ingewijden een immense invloed had Ontelbaar zijn diegenen die een diepgaande invloed ondergingen van de muziek van Derroll Adams maar ook en misschien evenzeer van zijn visie en manier van leven Derroll Adams overleed tijdens het draaien van de film Men moest toen op zoek gaan naar zijn oude reisgenoten in Engeland Ierland de Verenigde Staten Frankrijk Denemarken en natuurlijk ook bij ons om het beeld van zijn leven te schetsen Voor het eerst brengt deze film via interviews talrijke muziekfragmenten originele documenten en verfilmde archieven het beeld van de banjoman met de getatoeëerde handen Ook komen Donovan Jack Elliott Finbar Furey Arlo Guthrie Frank Hamilton Wizz Jones Youra Marcus Pete Seeger Ariette Reinerg Allan Taylor Hans Theessink Colin Wilkie Tucker Zimmerman en vele vrienden getuigen over Nederlandse vertaling Marc Bruynserade Fotos Somogy Michel Baudour Productie Caboose Productions CBA Cinemotion L Archipel RTBF België 2005 Realisatie Productie Patrick Ferryn Directeur van de fotografie Michel Baudour Klank Alain Sironval Richard Verthe Montage Denise Vindevogel Klank en Beeldmontage Alain Pierre Distributie Ventes CBA WIP Sales Contact Thierry Detaille T 32 2 227 22 30 F 32 2 227 22 39 email cba skynet be Caboose Productions Contact Patrick Ferryn Brussel BELGIË email caboose productions skynet be read the DVD review Trailer DIRECTOR S NOTE This film comes right from the heart and is a true labor of love which took seven years to be achieved At the time the project started nobody in Belgium was interested to spend a dime in such a production for the reason that Derroll Adams was sick old and almost forgotten by the media With the generous assistance of some friends all well decided to pay a tribute to the legendary banjoman with the tattooed hands we started filming long interviews with Derroll Adams in Antwerp in 1998 eventually becoming our own producer Unfortunately Derroll s poor health condition deteriorated and he passed away in February 2000 Then we were lucky to get the support of prominent long time companions and musician friends of Derroll and found the opportunity to visit and film them in the US in England Ireland Denmark France and Belgium Finally some years later when the filming was entirely done the CBA Centre a Bruxelles pour l Audiovisuel the French speaking and the Flemish Belgian TVs RTBF and VRT and the Danish TV became interested in the project giving me the possibility to finalize

  • Crossing Over | The Official Derroll Adams Site
    behavior yet the legend has been stronger and in the endless conversations his friends are still having today you ll hear stories about a fascinating and very unconventional man Many found comfort in his quiet low voice and sense of humor others a sense of protection and infinite freedom He sang songs and told stories to his audiences and at the same time he gave the impression that he was listening to you His authenticity as a human being and his refusal to conform often cast his professional career in obscurity Derroll is known to have played thousands of small folk clubs and street corners where he always took time to speak with people to listen to their tales and to share the stories of his own exceptional eventful life His life had an enormous influence on the way he approached and interpreted his songs He was always experimenting with people trying to find a path beyond the conventional and he was certainly subversive when he spoke He was a traditional musician dedicated to breaking rules and crossing over borders Banjo style Derroll Adams had no formal musical education or training At the time he took up the banjo in Portland he had no contact with other banjo players Consequently he was entirely self taught He once said that the younger generation unlike himself had the opportunity to hear all the recordings and study the printed methods none of which were available during the Depression years or even immediately after World War Two Derroll s banjo style is fundamentally simple and personal He always told other musicians that his style was easy to learn It must be said at once that he used his banjo mostly to accompany his voice We find strong interactions between his banjo and his voice He never played instrumentals and thus must be considered primarily a singer His style evolved with time and after the first energetic recordings he made with Jack Elliott his style slowly shifted to a more sober softer and quieter manner For example listen to his late version of Pretty Saro 65 th Birthday Concert see discography It must said here that he never played with a fiddler His interpretation of traditional songs was elevated attained perfection and was often intricate and nearly inimitable But he always tried to make that complexity unapparent See his Portland Town LP As a student in Portland after the war he would go to the public library and listen to the new recordings issued by the Library of Congress In this way he came into contact with Bascom Lamar Lunsford On the radio he was listening to the Grand Ole Opry the Carter Family Hank Williams Jimmy Rodgers and banjo players like Uncle Dave Macon He never met Lunsford personally but Pete Seeger and his friends Jack Elliott and Guy Carawan had At the beginning Derroll sounded a bit like Lunsford compare their two versions of Mister Garfield but it is unlikely that Derroll knew

  • Remembering Derroll | The Official Derroll Adams Site
    telling stories He had hundreds of them including a few he would never tell because they would make him look like a braggart I never once heard Derroll brag about himself and I am sure he never told anyone the story of how he saved my life It was a hot summer day in Neuchatel Switzerland and we went out on the lake in a small boat his wife and his baby girl and me and my wife and Derroll at the controls of the outboard motor Out in the middle I decided to take a swim I stripped to my shorts and jumped in I swam alongside the boat for about ten minutes then I began to tire and force myself to keep up with the boat Soon I was exhausted Derroll cut the motor and waited for me to catch up I dog paddled up reached and grabbed the gunwale with both hands and tried to pull myself out of the water Impossible The bottom side of the boat sloped away and there was no way to press any part of my body against it to get leverage I was all out of arm strength too I said to Derroll Head back to shore and I ll just hang on The nearest shore was a thousand yards away and I wondered if I could really hang on I was past exhaustion I thought I was going to drown But Derroll didn t start the boat Instead he reached over the side grabbed a fistful of elastic in the back of my shorts and lifted me out of the water Like a drowned dog His arm was a crane It swung over and gently set me face down on the bottom of the boat And tho I was no heavyweight at 160 pounds I out weighed Derroll by maybe twenty One arm one smooth motion He never trembled he didn t drop me I could have been a ten pound sack of potatoes he d just picked up at the market Better put your clothes on We re comin up on some folks in a minute or two Derroll was strong Very strong He never worked out or tried to keep in shape He d earned those muscles as a kid in Oregon working on the farms and in the woods He d built his muscles as a boy and had never lost them Great physical strength is not a quality you d expect from a 50 year old man who played banjo with the softest of touches It is more than likely that if Derroll had not left America if he had been on stage with Jack Elliott in New York in the sixties his style would have been adopted by many banjo players and that he would have inspired a younger generation of musicians as he did in Europe In a children s park one day he explained Aikido the Japanese martial art in which the students
