Hazelrigg Brothers performing at Bowman’s Tavern Restaurant

Since the late 1990’s pianist George and bassist Geoff Hazelrigg have pushed the boundaries of music. These brothers have done all the things one would expect from musicians in their prime: toured nationally and internationally, written works that have been featured on major media outlets, and recorded with some of the most important artists of the current age. Their musical roots, which began decades earlier, have prepared them well for their current jazz-trio project.

Raised in Princeton, NJ, their first professional experiences came from singing in the Trinity Church Choir led by world-renown choirmaster John Bertalot. At the same time George was studying harpsichord and organ, then adding jazz to his palate with teacher and Grammy-nominee Laurie Altman. Eventually his path led him to jazz-studies at Manhattan School of Music.

New Hope Film Festival is proud to present “All in Time” by Eastern Pennsylvania filmmakers Chris Fetchko and Marina Donohue at the County Theater in Doylestown, Pennsylvania on Thursday May 19th 2016 at 7:30 PM. “All in Time” received rave reviews from the audience during the 2015 New Hope Film Festival, where the filmmakers walked away with the Audience Choice Best Art House Feature Award, the Best Alternative Feature Award, and the Indie Spirit Award.

The film is about Charlie, who leaves his desk job in New York and moves back to his home in Pennsylvania to follow his dream… managing his favorite hometown rock band. Charley truly believes the band’s glory days are ahead. Charlie goes through an emotional tailspin when the band’s guitarist doesn’t agree with his optimism, and his relationship with his girlfriend is on shaky ground. With the help of an elderly neighbor and a young intern, Charlie tries to get the band on track and his girlfriend back before it’s too late. A fun inspiring movie that is not to be missed.
