Great concert film
26 June 2009 | by Chris1200See all my reviews

This is a compilation of three concerts from 1999 and 2001 dedicated to American Folk Musicm Songs, which were collected by Harry Smith, but interpreted by contemporary artists like Elvis Costello, Lou Reed, Steve Earle or the McGarrigle Sisters. The idea was to show the influence of American Folk Musics on social life and politics. It contains also a film be Harry Smith accompanied by Phil Glass, a real highlight. There is also a short sequence showing Harry Smith himself on the phone and another bonus showing him receiving his Grammy. All songs are played in full length. Technically it is very well filmed (the camera is steady) and the sound is great so that you can really enjoy the artists and their music.
