Short Movie Review

Songcatcher, 1999. No one that's famous, that I know of, is in it, other than Aiden Quinn.

A professor of "musicology" goes to Appalachia to visit her sister in the early 20th century and discovers mountain music, transported Scots Irish music from a hundred or so years before. She bonds with the local people and their ways.

Great music. Nice story. Quite worth a Netflix rental.

I saw it a long time ago and it appears on TV every now and then. It is a good movie and educational also.
