Incredible, engrossing true story magnificently told like nothing ever before. Appalachia Tour, Bluegrass Moonshine NASCAR, filmed on stage off-Broadway, combines engaging storytelling, music and historical footage to tell the story of the Scots-Irish; their 1700s migration from the north, their heritage, their moonshine, and how their whiskey-runners became renegade drivers and founders of NASCAR.
William Big-Bill Henry Getty France desperately needed the moonshiners and bootleggers if his dream of controlling stock-car racing would ever come to be...once accomplished he attempted to purge them all from the sport. France used any means possible to achieve his objective. Deception and intimidation were the norm, not the exception; ultimately France would bamboozle them all.
Humorist and cowboy poet Baxter Black is the engaging storyteller for this epic tale, supported by old-time and bluegrass music, under the guidance of music director and multiple International Bluegrass Music Association Award nominee Sierra Hull.
A great addition to a NASCAR fans DVD library... a must for those interested in a great American story... an artistic, entertaining stage performance.
