VA - Festival - Newport Folk Festival 1963-66 (2008)
This film by Murray Lerner is a cinematic synthesis of four Newport Folk Festivals in which the art of folk music is pictured in transition during its most crucial years. Performers include Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Georgia Sea Singers, Peter, Paul, & Mary, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Donovan, Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Ed Young Fife & Drum Corps, Jim Kweskin & the Jug Band with Mel Lyman, Sacred Harp Singers, Blue Ridge Mountain Dancers, Tex Logan & The Lilly Brothers, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Odetta, Fred McDowell, Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry, Swan Silvertones, STaple Singers, Freedom Singers, Fannie Lou Hamer, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Howling Wolf.

Long before it became inextricably linked with Bob Dylan's infamous "electric" performance, the Newport Folk Festival was the premier event of the burgeoning 1960s music scene. The brainchild of Newport Jazz Festival founder, George Wein, and his business partner, Albert Grossman (who later went on to manage Dylan), Newport introduced the world to a then-unknown folk singer named Joan Baez and nurtured the talents of more established artists such as Donovan, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, and Peter, Paul and Mary. Veteran music director Murray Lerner (Message to love: The isle of wight festival) presents a collection of archival footage from four of Newport's '60s-era festivals featuring these and many other legendary musicians for a vital historical document of an American cultural institution.
