Documentary, Live Concert, Wine and Appetizer Intermission

Please join us for the U.S. premiere of “It’s Just a Lifetime” (A portrait of Craig Nuttycombe), a delightfully offbeat documentary about an amusing, almost famous, Woodstock era singer/songwriter, now in his seventies and still strumming. View trailer HERE.

Locals may know Craig as the lead singer/songwriter for the wildly popular “gypsy, swing, tango” band, “Café Musique,” having played “Hidden Valley Music Seminars” for a half dozen gigs (including three sold out New Year’s Eves.)

Retired handyman, devoted dog owner, and sixties troubadour: Craig Nuttycombe is the surviving half of “Lambert and Nuttycombe”, the West Coast’s “Simon and Garfunkel.”

Following a wide-ranging, yearlong correspondence, the Canadian filmmakers, Tim Ursuliak and Carmen Cookson-Hills, travelled to Central California to live with the musician for three weeks, tucked in amongst the gentle greenery of a quiet mobile home park, while they documented his musings, interactions, and memories.

 Presented in the style of ’70’s handmade films, “It’s Just a Lifetime” is an affectionate, musical odyssey of a resilient, septuagenarian artist who defies the ‘almost famous’ archetype by embracing life’s lessons with a song in his heart, and a toothpick on his lips.

Following the screening, there will be a brief intermission during which the audience can mingle with the filmmakers, followed by a short concert with Craig and Duane Inglish (the accordionist and bandleader) from Café Musique, back in the theatre.
