Ropewalk Soundtrack

Bruce Dalzell, Ohio contemporary folk singer/songwriter, has composed, recorded and engineered a quintessential American musical soundtrack for Ropewalk.


Each musical composition enhances the various themes of the film perfectly, using typical American-sounding melodies - including marches, waltzes and blues - played on instruments such as guitar, mandolin, dobro, banjo, snare drum and synthesizer.


In Bruce’s own words, “Music is a basic element of film - together with light, form and movement, a soundtrack evokes response from the viewer, all in support of a storyline.”


Bruce, and Ropewalk,  received a Silver Award of Excellence for Best Impact of Music in a Documentary, at the 2009 Park City Film Music Festival.
