Jug Band Movie
The film will make its East Coast debut during the Woodstock Film Festival, to be held in Woodstock, NY from October 10-14th, 2007. The festival has played host to a number of influential feature and documentary films including Standing In The Shadows Of Motown, Spellbound, and Pieces Of April, since its inception in 1999.
"Chasin' Gus' Ghost", directed by Todd Kwait, explores the influence of jug band luminary Gus Cannon (voice narration by Taj Mahal) - a musician who helped shape American roots music and also inspired many other well-known, chart-topping artists such as Bob Weir (Grateful Dead) and John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful). All About Jazz's Samuel Chell called it "an absorbing movie capable of inspiring a whole new generation of ghost-chasers." - trailer
