A treasure trove of recently filmed and rare archival footage, photos, and music, this film includes performances and interviews by The New Lost City Ramblers, Maybelle and Sara Carter, David Grisman, Pete Seeger, Ricky Skaggs, Doc Watson, and many other masters of old time music. Contains rarely seen and never before seen bonus footage, including 24 minutes (8 more songs) of a rarely-seen 1969 color film of the NLCR, plus never-before-seen 1959 footage of the NLCR with Tom Paley (2 more songs).
One of the things that the New Lost City Ramblers did was uncover great old songs that you could only find in those days in piles of 78s in somebody s barn. They breathed new life into those songs, and their records stand the test of time, just like the originals. --Bob Dylan
