This was a great film to watch - Real people with amazing talent.
14 February 2013 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I was more than entertained by the performances and "documentary" style of the movie. I felt as though I had an opportunity to not only enjoy the amazing talent of the bands, but was able to see a little bit of the people behind the music. I am an OCMS fan and have been for years. It was great that they had the chance to travel around with each other and perform to so many fans along the way. Honestly, the movie could have been even longer and I would have stayed glued to the TV. I was also impressed with the Electric Zeros as I had not had a chance to experience their music, but they were great too.

All in all the film showed how humble and amazing Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Electric Zeroes are as musicians, artists and people. I will enjoy watching this film for many years to come and hope that there is a soundtrack with all of the music forthcoming as well!!!
