Bluegrass Country Soul, the first bluegrass movie, has been proclaimed a classic and has been used by fans and filmmakers around the world to introduce newcomers to this exciting style of music.
In 2018 we launched this website to announce a restoration project of the sole surviving 35 mm print, and the donation of an archival copy to the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky.
In order to help defray some of the costs of restoring the film, we have created a unique collector’s item: the Golden Anniversary, Legacy Edition, multi-media box set of Bluegrass Country Soul.
The festival experience is the way in which so many of us were first introduced to bluegrass. If you’d like to introduce someone you know to bluegrass music, consider giving them their own special edition box set. You can click on “Shop Now” and go directly to our order form.
Everyone who orders a box-set will be helping us to make this historic project a success.
Please watch our new trailer, below, with footage from the restored movie, along with interviews with Ricky Skaggs and Bill Emerson talking about the film.
Thanks for all your help in getting the word out about our project, and keeping this important part of the bluegrass story alive. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates and notice of special events.
