Harnetty‘s “Shawnee, Ohio” — presented here in a newly edited film version — weaves together field and archival recordings, video, images, and newly composed music to critically examine and explore issues of extraction, economy, and ecology in Appalachian Ohio. As with many of his other projects, Harnetty drew from extensive archival recordings as well as regional music and personal testimony to create a transporting portrait that places history in dialogue with our lived experience today.
“Shawnee, Ohio” features performances from Harnetty, Paul de Jong (The Books), Anna Roberts-Gevalt (Anna and Elizabeth), and Katie Porter (Red Desert), among other distinguished musicians.
