Hull Independent Cinema & Doc ‘N Roll present: Karen Dalton – In My Own Time
Idolized by Dylan and later by Nick Cave, Adele and Joanna Newsom, folk blues singer and guitarist Karen Dalton was a charismatic figure in the fertile scene of 1960s New York. A reluctant live performer and a fiercely independent artist who fought against industry demands, Dalton led a difficult and unconventional life until her premature death in 1993.
Since most photographs and film footage of Dalton have been lost or destroyed, this long-awaited film draws on her recordings, and interviews with loved ones and collaborators, to build a rich portrait of a singularly gifted musician and her hauntingly beautiful voice – and a body of work that continues to grow in influence.
Starring Karen Dalton, Nick Cave, Angel Olsen, Danny Goldberg
