About The Golem - Live Scored by Gary Lucas

The legendary guitarist plays his original music live for the newly-restored 1920 silent horror film classic for a special Hanukkah performance. Watch the film, with Lucas’ live guitar score. Then join Lucas for a discussion about his score of the film and The Golem’s place in cinematic history. Gary Lucas is a Grammy-nominated songwriter, an international recording artist, and a soundtrack composer for film and television. The former Captain Beefheart guitarist has recorded over 50 acclaimed albums in a variety of genres — jazz, rock, classical, folk, blues, avant-garde, and world music — and has performed in over 40 countries. Gary has received several Lifetime Achievement awards for his songwriting with Jeff Buckley (he co-wrote Jeff’s anthems “Grace” and “Mojo Pin”) and many other honors, including performing solo before the General Assembly of the UN to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Considered one of the greatest living guitarists, Gary has performed and collaborated with musical luminaries Leonard Bernstein, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, and Nick Cave, among many others.
