Story


When folk icon Irving Steinbloom passed away, he left behind a legacy of music and a family of performers he had shepherded to folk stardom. To celebrate a life spent submerged in folk, Irving's loving son Jonathan (BOB BALABAN) has decided to put together a memorial concert featuring some of Steinbloom's best-loved musicians.

There's Mitch & Mickey (EUGENE LEVY and CATHERINE O'HARA), who were the epitome of young love until their partnership was torn apart by heartbreak; classic troubadours The Folksmen (CHRISTOPHER GUEST, MICHAEL McKEAN and HARRY SHEARER), whose records were endlessly entertaining for anyone able to punch a hole in their center to play them; and The New Main Street Singers (featuring JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS, JANE LYNCH and PARKER POSEY), the most meticulously color-coordinated "neuftet" ever to hit an amusement park near you.

Now, for one night only in New York City's Town Hall, these three groups will reunite and gather together to celebrate the music that almost made them famous.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Funny concept, but not much exciting happens..”
by [E! Online]
“..although the humor in A Mighty Wind isn?t quite as sharp or punchy as in Guest and company?s previous efforts, it?s still consistently, and often hysterically, funny..”
by Brian McKay [EFilmCritic]
“..Guest does an incredible job weaving a story, conflict and action into the backstage of the concert..”
by Kevin Carr [Film Threat, Hollywood's Indie Voice]
