Winter’s Bone, The music: Among the highlights of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are the old time sounds of the Ozarks translated into the 21st century by stellar vocalist Marideth Sisco. Her Ronnie Gilbert (of the Weavers) inspired vocals are absolute joy – and she’s an expert storyteller of the Ozarks region;, her spoken word podcast, These Ozarks Hills, can be found online at and on iTunes. Although these musicians are not yet nationally known (yet),, this soundtrack should will draw attention to these regional heroes; Dennis Crider,; an expert Western Swing guitar picker, Missouri bluegrass maverick ; Bo Brown, claw hammer banjo picker; Van Colbert, guitarist and songwriter: Rick Reding, and Missouri Ozarks fiddle master Billy Ward (to name but a few) that will delight fans of “No Depression” and classic Americana music.

For those seeking more contemporary music flavors, one could do no better than Dickon Hinchliffe – a founding member of the seminal English band The Tindersticks in which he wrote songs, played violin, guitar and keyboards. Dickon’s other movie film scores (with the Tindersticks’) include director Claire Denis’ Trouble Every Day which starred Vincent Gallo.
