#3: Top 4 Music Movies After Thanksgiving Dinner
To kick things off during that delirious state between your 3rd slice of pie and your dreams about turkey leftovers, I’m suggesting a must-see movie.
It’s called “Echo in the Canyon.”
This retrospective looks at the Laurel Canyon music scene in the ’60s and ’70s that hosted a variety of famous musicians.
While I was originally reluctant to feature “Echo in the Canyon,” you’ll see how well it blends nostalgia with the impact those musicians have on the industry today.
My next recommendation is a doozy.
It’s called “Charlie Louvin: Still Rattlin’ the Devil’s Cage.”
If you love bluegrass and personal stories of growth, you have to check out this documentary out.
In fact, the story of the Louvin brothers is so good, Ethan Hawke is in a biopic about them.
While the Charlie Louvin documentary is sure to rattle your spirit, check out this next recommendation if you want something more lively.
It’s called “Fiddlin’.”
And yes, you guessed it…it’s about fiddling.
In addition, “Fiddlin'” is just a great showcase of bluegrass music. If you’re wondering if this American art form is still going to be going strong, watch “Fiddlin’.”
Finally, I have one last pick for your post-Thanksgiving digestion…
It’s called “Big Family: The Story of Bluegrass Music”
Now, I don’t want to spoil this one for you at all, but “Big Family: The Story of Bluegrass Music” is a comprehensive history of bluegrass.
Produced by PBS, this documentary features archival footage and interviews with some of the biggest names to grace the bluegrass communities.
If you watch any of these movies, let me know what you think in the comments!

#1: The White Buffalo
If you want to hear a magical voice, you have to check out The White Buffalo.
Like other folk artists, The White Buffalo has a grizzled voice that is reminiscent of Eddie Vedder but with great clarity and depth.
