Just watched the film American Epic last night on Detroit PBS.
It's a film about the restoration of the first travelling recording machine and current artists recording old time songs on the device.
Check out the site, and try to see the film, you may enjoy it, I sure did.
The DVD, vinyl, CD, or digital download is available soon.

I always very much enjoyed it. I have seen 3 parts so far. Not sure how many were made.

I have been watching the series.
I enjoyed the last episode, the Hopi native people, the black fellow who's songs seemed to inspire the folk movement, not to mention his guitar styling. Although a style that is classic original blues, the way he hard plucked with his thumb, never heard anything like it.
The bayou music installment was up my ally.
My favourite, so far, by a big margin.
Thanks for posting
