An Excellent summation of an excellent group. Real History here. The New Lost City Ramblers didn't just make music and history, they invited them along on the journey. This DVD captures this dynamic folk group at its' essence. With the recent passing of Mike Seeger this film is vital for anyone interested in the history of American Music and in learning how to collect and pass on the treasures of our culture. Please purchase this film and do yourself a favor.

This video of the New lost City Ramblers is s fitting tribute to the late Mike Seeger, Musician, Musicologist and fine human being.
This DVD is a must-have for all devotees of traditional old-time music, collected and presented by 4 excellent multi-instrumentalists.

I was expecting a more in depth history of how they met and how they got started. It mentions it sure, but doesn't really expand more on "we met in such and such town and started pickin".
It does have alot of good music and interesting archival videos [which i wish there were more], but as a documentary it doesn't really hit the nail on the head like it should. It's an alright buy for someone who really likes the New Lost City Ramblers I think, but even for those fans it's not worth 22 dollars.
