Another young musician acting in TREME

December 29, 2011

Last year Jaron "Bear" Williams played a role in HBO's Treme. The young Roots of Music trumpeter featured in The Whole Gritty City played the part of, well, a young trumpeter in a marching band. In the upcoming season Jaron will appear again, and so will Jazz Henry, another member of The Roots of Music featured in our film. This year, in real life, Jaron joins his brother Diggy in The O. Perry Walker High School Marching Band, under the direction of the legendary Wilbert Rawlins Jr. (also featured in our film).

The Whole Gritty City will be released by the end of the coming spring. We'll announce the details as soon as we know.
