Jeffrey Overstreet reviews three music-based documentaries: Awake My Soul: The Story of the Sacred Harp, Homemade Hillbilly Jam, and We Are Together.
This month, three new DVDs give you an opportunity for unforgettable musical journeys. All you need is a DVD player, and you can voyage to the Talladega National Forest, or the Ozarks, or South Africa, to experience soulful, inspiring music from unforgettable people.
I’ve seen all three, and I encourage you to make all three trips. You won’t regret it.
I saw a portion of Awake My Soul: The Story of the Sacred Harp when Pitchfork was streaming it a month or so ago, and what I saw definitely intrigued me. And speaking of music-based documentaries that you should check out, I highly recommend Danielson: A Family Movie.
