Follow Blake from the early days up to his trip to Carnegie Hall for the "O Brother Where Art Thou" concert. In addition to extensive interviews and some live "pickin" music with Blake, hear from some of the most influential and talented musicians in North America, including Sam Bush, John Hartford, Michelle Shocked, Fletcher Bright and many more.
