Quotes & Highlights
In 2001, O Brother Where Art Thou and producer T-Bone Burnett won the Grammy for Best Album, beating out the likes of U2 and Bob Dylan. The album is credited with bringing bluegrass and blues back to the main stage and has inspired everyone involved with Up From the Delta.
Berek Awend of The Fattenin’ Frogs sums up the impact of the album and the movie, “‘O Brother, Where Art Thou introduced me to the roots of American music. It made me dig deeper and learn about the roots of blues, country, gospel and bluegrass. For a Jewish kid from St. Louis Park, these were topics that required a guide. The Coen Brothers and O Brother [Where Art Thou] were the guides that provided a common thread to find people to play music with and play music for."
