Local musician Cathy Grier is writing a blues score for an upcoming documentary about turning 60 years old. The documentary, called “My first and last film” is being directed by Tracey Thomas of Milwaukee and an all-female crew who visited Door County last weekend. Grier shares how her opportunity came about.
Grier first thought Thomas had approached her because she was turning 60 years old in November when it was actually the producer looking for a female blues artist to provide the film’s final musical score. The documentary crew had traveled to Arizona and California before taking a two-year hiatus after Thomas’ partner passed away. Grier is finishing up the score at Studio 330 in Sturgeon Bay and expects the film to be completed in the next month in time for upcoming film festivals.
