Written and directed by Christopher Guest, creator of 'Best in Show', this affectionately satirical 'mockumentary' could be described as folk music's answer to 'Spinal Tap'. Irving Steinbloom (played by Stuart Luce) is an influential figure in the folk music world in the late 50s and early 60s, and when he dies his son Jonathan (Bob Balaban) decides to put together a memorial concert to celebrate his life, featuring some of Steinbloom's best-loved musicians. The film focuses on the various bands, duos and trios that are reunited at the concert in New York City Town Hall for the big event, and pokes fun at the earnest self-importance of the characters and their extremely prolific musical output.
