Excellent Film Experience

Greenwich Village: Music That Defined A Generation, at the 2013 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Once upon a time, Joan Baez's father picked me up hitchhiking and asked me to play my guitar. He was the first person I got a ride with that I didn't play guitar for. Laura Archibald, a woman from Canada, helped me understand parts of myself in this film that are beyond words. Dylan, Joni Mitchell and all who gathered in Greenwich Village created the foundation of American music that impacted all that followed. There shall be those who wanted this musician or situation to be included here. I fully understand. Music, poetry and talking. Something to say, that wasn't at the beginning, for sale. Joan Baez's father said this to me as I was getting out of his car near Stanford. Young man, until you learn to appreciate the art for the art itself, it doesn't matter if two people clap for you, or two thousand clap for you. His love travels with my music today (I write music) each step I take. Merci beau coup, Miss Archibald. Abientot. BJ
