This concert DVD was filmed in March 2010, as a companion to the CD Things About Coming My Way - A Tribute To The Mississippi Sheiks
. A once-only concert that was the last event of the 2010 Vancouver Cultural Olympiad which ran during the Winter Olympics, featured an all-star lineup of Dave Alvin, John Hammond, Van Dyke Parks, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Jim Byrnes, Colin James, Bob Brozman, Geoff Muldaur, Robin Holcomb, The Sojourners, Oh Susanna, and Steve Dawson. The DVD showcases 12 new performances by this unique group of artists, including collaborations and an encore performance of Sitting On Top Of The World
with all of the artists. Also included are exclusive interviews, backstage footage and a behind the scenes look at the rehearsals that occurred before the concert took place.
A concert for the ages... by the time Dawson and company took the stage at eight o'clock last Sunday night, all of the barriers had come down, and intuition was given free rein. And while the blues - like reggae - isn't the hardest music in the world to play from a technical standpoint, feeling is essential and something that can't be learned from a book or a lesson. Thankfully, feeling was at a premium throughout the more than three hours of music the sold out audience was treated to - as the blues was revitalized and given new life right before their eyes and ears. -- No Depression
Dawson's championship of the group is heroic. -- Mojo Magazine
