LEGENDS OF AMERICAN MUSIC is a journey through the tapestry of American Blues, Country, Jazz, Rock, Folk and Bluegrass music featuring rare film performances by Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, BILL MONROE, Ruth Brown, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and many others.
THE LEGENDS SERIES, compiled and hosted by award-winning documentary filmmaker JOE LAURO, will bring to the big screen amazing performance video clips culled from one of the world’s largest archives of music on film, the Historic Films Archive. Historic Films is dedicated to the re-discovery and preservation of all forms of American entertainment as it exists on film and video tape.
Historic Films has provided film clips to everyone from THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME MUSEUM and Martin Scorsese (his BLUES and Bob Dylan projects) to AMERICAN IDOL and THE GRAMMY AWARDS.
