Clifftop Fans – Check Out This Documentary


This weekend, hundreds of fans of old-time music braved rain and mud to jam with each other at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival — known better by its nickname, Clifftop.

Our own Bill Lynch wrote this story in the Sunday Gazette-Mail about Clifftop 2014. It talks about the informal, spontaneous nature of the event, where musicians wander from group to group, striking up jams along the way.

And you should watch this half-hour documentary that captures the energy of the event from producer John Nakashima, “Clifftop.” I especially love the footage of the all-night jam session at the end.
