: For The Love of the Music : The Club 47 Folk Revival

This music-filled documentary explores the rich history of Club 47, the iconic Cambridge, Massachusetts folk-music mecca, from 1958-1968. Narrated by Peter Coyote, this fascinating story explores the magic that emerged when a small group of talented musicians came together in a tiny coffeehouse and altered the course of American music. 
From the 60s folk revival to the dawn of the "singer-songwriter era," the story is told through personal recollections by Club 47 performers, including Joan Baez, Taj Mahal, Judy Collins, Tom Rush, Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, Jackie Washington, Jim Rooney, Peter Rowan, and many more. "For the Love of the Music" also features previously unreleased audio recordings and photographs of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Eric Von Schmidt, inspiring new performances by many of Club 47's original stars, as well as fresh songs from today's young folk performers -- proving that folk music never stops evolving.
