Film Music Friday - June 10, 2022 (Carter Burwell)

Carter Burwell didn't aspire to become a composer, much less a film composer.  However, filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen gave him an opportunity to write the score for their first film, Blood Simple, in 1994 and he went on to write music for most of the Coen brothers' films.  On this week's Film Music Friday we'll hear Burwell's music from Fargo; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; True Grit; The Big Lebowski and more.
