Produced for PBS by Emmy-winning filmmaker Jim Brown, Legends of Folk features the biggest and most influential artists of the era including Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Neil Diamond, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez and many more.
The live footage offers an exciting and historic firsthand view into the music and musicians that forever changed pop culture from the intimate stage of The Village Scene. Legends of Folk is hosted by Noel Paul Stookey, of Peter, Paul and Mary.
On Legends of Folk: The Village Scene, a young Bob Dylan makes one of his earliest performances of “Blowin’ in the Wind,” Judy Collins tears through a searing rendition of “My Father,” and Simon and Garfunkel perform their epic “The Sound of Silence.”
The DVD assembles songs by 17 artists in the early days of their careers, as well as full-length, exclusive interviews with John Cohen, Don McLean, Maria Muldaur, Tom Paxton, Michelle Phillips (Mamas and Papas), John Sebastian and Peter Yarrow.
The DVD also features two performances not previously seen on PBS when the film was originally aired.
