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 review is from: Always Been A Rambler (DVD)
This video of the New lost City Ramblers is s fitting tribute to the late Mike Seeger, Musician, Musicologist and fine human being.

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.
