From humble beginnings in 2015 in Ryan Cockerham’s classroom at NWACC, the Shadow Ensemble — made up of musicians from many backgrounds using instruments from world music and days gone by — has grown to a schedule this fall that takes performers from Houston to San Antonio to Little Rock to Tulsa.

Ryan Cockerham thinks films are fine things. But that's not where his passion lies. He scores silent films with a live band -- which he calls the Shadow Ensemble -- to enjoy the juxtaposition of music, musicians and the movies.
