Join Bill Bassett, longtime singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and master of ceremonies at the Blazin’ M Ranch for a night of Music in the House, It’s All About the Songs at the Sedona Hub on Friday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m.

This song stylist has a collection of original and co-written tunes for the audience’s listening pleasure.

“He’s a rare combination of virtuosic musicianship and natural showmanship,” Eric Williams, Sedona’s good-time piano man, said of Bassett. “His warmth and easygoing nature blend perfectly with musicians and audience members.”

Tickets are $10 at the door and online through showtix4u.com, and doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the concert running from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Bassett has been an Arizonian since the early 2000s. In 2005 he was asked to join the Blazin’ M Cowboys, and now, more than 12 years later, he is still leading the band through nightly shows featuring cowboy music both old and new, playing pedal steel guitar, mandolin, banjo and lead guitar along with Jim and Jeanne Martin and Tom Jepperson.

“Bill is a wonderful musician and is one of the best steel guitar players I’ve ever heard,” Jepperson said. “His song ‘The Ballad of the Blazin’ M Ranch’ has become the theme song for the ranch.”

“I’ve always loved the singing of a good steel guitar, and better yet, a musician that plays with beauty and can hold his own with me,” said Micki Free, Grammy winner and five-time Native American Award winner.

Bassett has had a long and varied career in the music business, as a performer, songwriter, touring band member and television show developer. Bassett got his start in Seattle and Bellingham in the early 1970s, working for national recording artist Pat Roberts and the Evergreen Drifters. They appeared with or opened for many of the legends of country music, including Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn and Merle Haggard.

Touring and traveling hundreds of miles overnight was an education in the country side of show business, working with many of the Grand Old Opry stars from Kitty Wells to Grandpa Jones. During the later 1970s, they developed “Country Northwest,” a television show for KSTW TV, featuring many local and national touring acts.

This show is the second in a 2017-18 Music in the House 10-show series at the Sedona Hub, dedicated to providing quality music to the Verde Valley community at affordable prices.

Upcoming shows highlight a number of local and visiting singer-songwriters and interpreters of great music.
Don’t miss this special It’s All About the Songs show with Bassett in the intimate space at The Hub on Friday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m.

The Sedona International Film Festival presents the Northern Arizona premiere of “Loving Vincent,” showing Friday through Wednesday, Nov. 17 through 22, at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Loving Vincent” — the world’s first fully oil-painted feature film — brings the artwork of Vincent van Gogh to life in an exploration of the complicated life and controversial death of one of history’s most celebrated artists.

More than six years in the making with the help of 125 specially trained painters, “Loving Vincent” is a uniquely animated film composed of 65,000 painted frames. Drawn from meticulous research and inspired by van Gogh’s masterpieces, subjects and 800 personal letters, “Loving Vincent” captures the world of van Gogh in a cinematic experience like no other.

No other artist has attracted more legends than van Gogh. Variously labelled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a layabout; the real van Gogh is at once revealed in his letters, and obscured by myth and time. Van Gogh himself said in his last letter, “We cannot speak other than by our paintings.” We take him at his word and let the paintings tell the real story of Vincent van Gogh.

“Loving Vincent” was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing van Gogh’s famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint.

“Loving Vincent” stars faces to match the famous paintings they portray:

Douglas Booth stars as Armand Roulin
Eleanor Tomlinson is Adeline Ravoux
Jerome Flynn plays Doctor Gachet [the painting of whom held the record for the highest priced painting for 14 years, the longest time ever]
Saoirse Ronan plays his daughter Marguerite Gachet
Chris O’Dowd is Postman Joseph Roulin
John Sessions is Vincent’s paint supplier, Pere Tanguy
Aidan Turner is the Boatman from van Gogh’s “Bank of the Oise at Auvers” painting
Helen McCrory plays Louise Chevalier, housekeeper to Doctor Gachet
Theater actor Robert Gulaczyk in his first film role as Vincent van Gogh

“An animated masterpiece! It is easy to love ‘Loving Vincent.’ An absolutely stunning film .... I have never seen anything on screen like it before. You will be amazed, and lifted by this extraordinary film.” — Pete Hammond, Deadline

“Hypnotic and beguiling.” — A. O. Scott, the New York Times

“Remarkable. You will marvel at the art in this labor-intensive labor of love.” — Bob Mondello, NPR’s All Things Considered

“A miraculous tribute.” — Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly

“Loving Vincent” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Nov. 17 through 22. Showtimes will be 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17; 4 and 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19; and 4 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

The Sedona International Film Festival presents an encore return of the documentary “Heal” on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Heal” premiered at the Illuminate Film Festival in June to rave reviews. This encore return is by popular demand. Jeffrey Thompson, who is featured in the film, will be in Sedona to host a Q&A discussion after both screenings of “Heal.” Sheron Foster will moderate the discussion.

Written and directed by Kelly Noonan Gores and produced by Adam Schomer, “Heal” takes its audience on a scientific and spiritual journey to discover that thoughts, beliefs and emotions have a huge impact on a person’s health and ability to heal.

The latest science reveals that people are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should people buy into a scary prognosis. Through interviews with such luminaries as Deepak Chopra, Bruce Lipton, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Gregg Braden and Anita Moorjani, the film highlights the often surprising relationship between spirituality and science and how people have more control over their health than they have been taught to believe.

“Heal” not only taps into the minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers, but also follows two people on high-stakes healing journeys. Healing can be complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment. Through these inspiring and emotional stories we find out what works, what doesn’t and why. Thompson is founder and director of the Center for Neuroacoustic Research in Carlsbad, Calif. He is a physician, musician, composer, scientist, researcher, educator, author and visionary.

His interests, talents and scientific approach to holistic sound healing created a paradigm shift in his life and in the field of sound, and he is certified in physiotherapy, chiropractic radiography, craniopathy, sacral-occipital work, blood analysis and nutritional counseling, Chinese meridian work, bio-magnetic and color therapies. Join us for this film and discussion with Thompson after both shows.

“Heal” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. Call 282-1177 for tickets and more information. The theater and film festival office are at 2030 W. State Route 89A in West Sedona. Visit SedonaFilmFestival.org for more information.
