‘Christopher Robin’ movie trailer features music by Cleveland act Lighthouse and the Whaler

CLEVELAND, Ohio - “Christopher Robin,” the modern adaption of the classic “Winnie the Pooh,” will warm hearts this weekend as it hits theaters across the country.

Ahead of its opening, Clevelanders may have heard a familiar song during the promotion of the film, which stars Ewan McGregor in the classic tale of a boy and his bear. 

Local act The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s track, “Follow the Sun,” is featured prominently in the “Christopher Robin” trailer.

It’s not the first time the band has been in the national spotlight – their song, “We Are Infinite,” was also featured on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

You can see The Lighthouse and the Whaler perform at Music Box Supper Club this Wednesday, Aug. 8, as part of Cleveland.com’s Cleveland Sessions video series. The new concert video series, presented by Miller Lite, highlights bands we think you should know about, both locally and nationally.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and showtime is 7 p.m. To attend, we ask that you RSVP online (and feel free to share the Facebook event with friends). Cleveland indie-pop duo By Light We Loom will join them.

At the Cleveland Sessions show, you’ll see a full performance by both bands, and you’ll be included in a special video recording session with the groups. Cleveland.com videographers will capture the first three songs by each act on video, and then the bands will continue the show for its audience after the recording wraps up.

Lighthouse and the Whaler made a splash with its 2009 self-titled debut that garnered national attention. In support of their follow-up, “This Is An Adventure,” the band hit the road on a U.S. tour, sharing the stage with Jukebox the Ghost, Matt Pond PA and Ra Ra Riot. For 2015′s “Mont Royal,” they entered the studio with Marcus Paquin, whose work has spanned bands including The National and Arcade Fire. 

The band has been writing for the last year, and they recently released two new singles, “Into the Unknown” and “Future Blind.”
