http://www.westernfolklife.org Red-Rock-Rondo When Louise Excell was growing up in Springdale, Utah, there were fruit-bearing mulberry trees lining both sides of the street all the way through town. They were full of fruit—white mulberries, black mulberries, red mulberries—which attracted huge flocks of birds (inspiring Louise to be a life-long birder). The children's hands would turn purple with the juice from those mulberries. But one by one, the trees were cut down for development. Louise said that, sadly, there's no place for mulberry trees in Springdale anymore. Here is Louise's story put to song in the high-definition musical documentary, Red Rock Rondo, filmed in and around Utah's Zion National Park for its centennial anniversary celebration in 2009. Produced by the Western Folklife Center, Red Rock Rondo has been awarded two Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards. Red Rock Rondo is Charlotte Bell, Phillip Bimstein, Hal Cannon, Harold Carr, Flavia Cerviño-Wood, and Kate MacLeod.
