'Fanning The Fire' Bluegrass Documentary Earns Film Festival Award

Fanning The FireFanning The Fire is a vibrant documentary short that features a young Texas teen that followed his dreams from being a fan of bluegrass music all the way to opening for some of the greatest entertainers in the business – in less than three years. Along the way, the documentary explores why people young and old get hooked on playing this music and enjoying companionship at festivals around the world. Viewers also enjoy behind-the-scenes visits with master musicians from across the USA and Europe who explain how they came to appreciate this uniquely American form of music and why it has broad appeal to beginning players and professionals alike. The film captured, in a tie vote, the award for Best Documentary - Music/Culture at the 2011 Film Festival of Colorado awards.
