"Isn't This a Time" provides a heart warming tribute to the Golden Age of folk music. The vehicle for the film is the 2003 tribute concert at Carnegie Hall to Harold Leventhal who was the producer for these groups. All of the great folk singers of the 50s and 60s are on stage. Theodore Bikel, Joan Baez, Peter Paul & Mary, The Weavers, Arlo Guthri, Leon Bibb and Pete Seeger are filmed preparing for and singing in this concert. They sing many of their greatest hits and share their world view of their music providing the sound track for social action on behalf of the poor and powerless throughout the world. It is Remarkable to see their youth-of-spirit now that they are in their 80s. Too bad this film is not available for rent.
