Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel Featured in ‘Legends of Folk: The Village Scene’ DVD
Fans of the '60s folk movement are in for an extra treat with the release of 'Legends of Folk: The Village Scene' -- a new DVD packed with vintage performances by the musical icons of that time.
Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Joan Baez, and Peter, Paul & Mary are just a few of the names you will find included in the package of performances that have been restored and remastered for this DVD, set for release in April.
'Legends of Folk' was originally produced for PBS by Emmy-winning filmmaker Jim Brown. In addition to their performance of 'If I Had a Hammer,' Peter, Paul and Mary's own Noel Paul Stookey serves as the host of the historic collection of music.
The DVD assembles songs by 17 artists in the early days of their careers, as well as full-length, exclusive interviews with John Cohen, Don McLean, Maria Muldaur, Tom Paxton, Michelle Phillips (Mamas & Papas), John Sebastian and Peter Yarrow. The set will also feature two performances by Peter Yarrow and John Cohen that were not seen on PBS when the film originally aired.
'Legends of Folk: The Village Scene' is set to hit stores on Tuesday, April 3.
