Here we are in Sam Shepard’s 1994 feature film, “Silent Tongue”, playing the part of the medicine show band, circa 1880. Pretty convincing, no?
The Ramblers created the score for Sam Shepard’s first feature film, starring Jessica Lange and Charles Durning. Set in northern Minnesota, the Ramblers’ score called on elements of Scandinavian music and original compositions.
The Red Clay Ramblers appeared as the medicine show band in Sam Shepard’s second feature film, with River Phoenix, Richard Harris and Alan Bates. The movie also featured clowns Bill Irwin and David Shiner, who subsequently teamed up with the ‘Blurs in the Broadway hit, Fool Moon.
