Three singer-songwriters
, ages 30 to 60, navigate the quirky sub-culture of American folk. A musical tradition that once saw the likes of Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan reach stardom, folk today rarely breaks into the mainstream. Instead, folk is heard at house concerts -- where a new breed of  mini music moguls roll back the furniture and host their favorite artists for a crowd of 20 or 30 friends; at jammed, 24/7 folk conferences -- where would-be stars trade social networking tips by day and gig at night down long corridors of hotel rooms turned into micro-clubs seating 5 or 6 people; and in tiny bars and the occasional festival, set well back along the blue highways of America.

FOLK is a verite character study which is part music documentary and part road trip movie -- a multi-layered examination of these three artists at dramatically different points in their lives, each faced with the same challenge of how to be heard in the 21st-century version of this distinctly American art form. Featuring: Hilary Adamson of The Flyin’ A’s, Dirk Hamilton the trio of John Elliott, Raina Rose and Anthony da Costa.
