Bascom Lamar Lunsford started it all.
Lunsford was a superb mountain musician who spent his life hunting down the songs, dances and unknown performers of the Appalachian region. He fought to bring dignity to "hillbilly music" and this made him a folk hero. He recorded thousands of songs for the Smithsonian. In the summer of 1928, he created the first Bluegrass Festival by founding his first Asheville Mountain Dance and Folk Festival.
This film tells his story and includes music, clog and square dancing, never before seen footage from southern musicians, as well as Bluegrass and Mountain music legends. Lunsford is on the road for most of the film, introducing Hoffman to great backcountry musicians. People like Obray Ramsey (banjo), Artus Moser, Mike Seeger, Alan Lomax, Tommy Hunter (fiddle), Roger Sprung (banjo), "Red" Raper, Ray Lundsford and many others.
Songs include: Cindy, Grey Eagle, Mountain Dew, Stand with Me, Black Jack Dew, Born in West Virginia, and more!
"They say that Lunsford would cross hell on a rotten rail for a good song and this film captures him and the great songs." - Bill Morrison, The News and Observer, Raleigh North Carolina.
