New Orleans Web Series "Bloody Sunday Sessions" Brings Mule-Drawn Music to the Masses

Free screening will showcase 12 acoustic videos and live performances by King James and Colin Lake at One Eyed Jacks

 

New Orleans, LA (March 26, 2013) - New Orleans is gaining a bigger musical spotlight. Bloody Sunday Sessions is a web-based video series of stripped down musical performances recorded from the back of the iconic mule-drawn carriages throughout the streets of the city. Bloody Sunday Sessions will officially debut the next 12 videos at a free screening party from 7:00 p.m. - 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 7 at One Eyed Jacks.

The event will also feature live acoustic performances by former and upcoming Bloody Sunday Sessions artists, including King James and Colin Lake. Starting on April 7th, there will be a release of one video per week for a period of three months on the official website at www.BloodySundaySessions.com. At the screening, creator Eric Heigle will announce the forthcoming, previously unreleased weekly schedule in addition to unveiling a few future artists who are booked for the series. In true Bloody Sunday Sessions style, free Bloody Marys will be served to screening attendees. 

"New Orleans and South Louisiana at large have a remarkable level of musical talent. Some of the best musicians in the world call Louisiana home," said Heigle. "Bloody Sunday Sessions seeks to increase exposure for the artists we know and admire by producing and hosting high-quality live music videos. We also have been able to take advantage of New Orleans as a destination for touring bands, filming while they are in town and providing the artists with a unique New Orleans experience they cannot get anywhere else."

Bloody Sunday Sessions are filmed on the streets of New Orleans rather than in a studio environment, and the atmosphere of the city streets often makes its way into the videos. Through an exclusive partnership with Royal Carriages, Bloody Sunday Sessions has the ability to choose filming locations around the city. The dynamic of the performer is matched to the area of New Orleans that is chosen, and the bands and performers are encouraged to get creative within the confines of the unconventional and kinetic framework. Production takes place on Sundays, and keeping in tune with the name of the series, musicians receive Bloody Marys as lagniappe.

This project was made possible by a successful fundraising campaign through the popular fan-funded website Kickstarter. Four videos have been released thus far including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Treme Brass Band, New Orleans Bingo! Show, and Fishbone. Edward Sharpe's Bloody Sunday Session video received more than 10,000 YouTube views and 900 Facebook shares in the first day of its release.
