Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 04/29/1994
"...One of those enthralling documentaries that draw their heretofore-unexplored subject matter with supreme ease. You need not have the slightest interest in bluegrass music to find this film a fascinating bit of Americana..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/08/1994
"...A thorough and thoroughly entertaining documentary....An exploration of bluegrass's roots, an almost poetic evocation of the world from which it sprang..."
A fascinating look at the origins and stars of bluegrass, a musical form that mixes African and Scottish/Irish traditions. The film focuses on 82-year-old bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, but it also incorporates archival footage and interviews with other well-known musicians such as Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.
