Always Been a Rambler: Celebrating 50 Years of the New Lost City Ramblers (DVD)

Always Been a Rambler traces the journey of the New Lost City Ramblers, stars of the 1960's folk revival who pioneered the concept of urban musicians working side by side with authentic traditional musicians. They influenced generations of musicians, from folk-rock elder statesmen Bob Dylan and Jerry Garcia to the contemporary African American string band the Carolina Chocolate Drops. A treasure trove of recently filmed and rare archival footage, photos, and music, including musical performances and interviews by by the New Lost City Ramblers, Clarence Ashley, the Balfa Brothers & Nathan Abshire, Maybelle & Sara Carter, Elizabeth Cotten, Foghorn Duo, Rayna Gellert, David Grisman, Roscoe Holcomb, Pete Seeger, Ricky Skaggs, the Strange Creek Singers, Doc Watson, and many other contemporary and historical masters of old time music.
