MUSICAL DOCUMENTARIES SERIES.
TROUBADOURS: RISE OF THE SINGER /SONGWRITER
NR, 2011, 132 minutes
Thurs, Aug 8 at 6pm
In the wake of the turbulent 1960s, a new style of song and songwriter came to the fore -- a style marked by vulnerable introspection and raw, naked emotion. Backed by little more than a lone acoustic guitar or simple piano, these exciting voices descended upon Los Angeles, the emerging epicenter of the American music scene, and the Troubadour, the famed West Hollywood club that nurtured this community of gifted young artists -- and blossoming critical, commercial sensations. TROUBADOURS is a first-hand account of the genesis of the singer-songwriter movement, centering on the historic collaboration between Carole King and James Taylor, as well as on Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Joni Mitchell, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, the Eagles, Elton John, and many others.
