The other night I was introduced to a movie called "Songcatcher." I was so mesmerized by the film & the old folkloric music of the mountain people. What intrigued me more was when my boyfriend informed me that he remembered their Nanny & Paw singing some of these very same songs when he was younger.
The history in each ballad is a wonderful treasure. I was so excited when not only did he have the movie, he had the 2 music cd's that were inspired by the film. If you get the opportunity to see this film, I hope you will take the time to do so.
