A variety of musicians from many different genres get together at New York's Town Hall on September 29, 2013 to perform folk songs included in and related to the recent movie about lesser-known folk singer Luen Davis.

All the performers, from The Punch Brothers to Patti Smith to Jack White do great renditions of the songs presented herein. The film starts off slow at first but soon develops a real campfire, jam session feel.

Many of these songs I had never heard before. Others I had heard with different verses but none of the verses played by these artists.

The only major complaint I have is they sing "Let The Circle Be Unbroken" as the second song. Any good folky knows you're supposed to leave that song till the end of the night.

Well worth checking out for a look at folk music or for just having a good time.
