One Response to “The 2010 Woodstock Film Festival Winners”

    “Roscoe Holcomb: From Daisy, Kentucky” is a wonderful contribution to the film archives of American music. It is made up of scenes left out of Cohen’s amazing “That High Lonesome Sound” documentary.

    He was clearly thrilled with the award and showed it off before playing some music, following the film, with the Dust Busters.

    They’ll be releasing a new album recorded with Cohen soon. Watch http://thedustbusters.blogspot.com for more info.
