Silent Films Out Loud pairs the indelible on-screen antics of comedic icon Buster Keaton with the ingenuity of four of Austin’s most talented composers: Justin Sherburn, Jackie Myers, Bob Hoffnar and Dave Biller.  

Joined by a full orchestra, each composer has prepared an original score to be performed live alongside one of Keaton’s classic short films. Inspired heavily by the voices of swing, ragtime, early jazz and other music of the silent film era, this reimagining also incorporates the expressiveness of those behind the compositions. Silent Films Out Loud feature the work of notable guitarist and Crossroads Festival alumni Dave Biller (Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, Biller & Wakefield), internationally-known pedal steel guitarist Bob Hoffnar (Norah Jones, Ryan Adams,The Mood Illusion), soulful singer and pianist Jackie Myers(Jackie Myers Band, The Lonesome Heroes, Doug Strahan & the Good Neighbors), and award-winning composer Justin Sherburn (Okkervil River, Montopolis).  

Silent Films Out Loud is presented in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and One World Theatre.
