In 1971, the Washington Film Group, a new company of young filmmakers, shot a feature-length documentary at Carlton Haney’s 7th Annual Labor Day Weekend Bluegrass Music Festival in Camp Springs, North Carolina. The 3-day concert featured many of the elder statesmen of bluegrass: Earl Scruggs, Chubby Wise, Ralph Stanley, Jimmy Martin, and Mac Wiseman. The film captured performances by many of today’s top stars, when they were starting their careers: Ricky Skaggs, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Tony Rice, and Doyle Lawson. Also featured are popular artists The Osborne Brothers, The Country Gentlemen, The Lilly Brothers and The New Deal String Band. The festival had a number of surprises, such as a visit by country music legend Roy Acuff and his Smoky Mountain Boys, a fiddle jam, and a young group from Japan, The Bluegrass 45. The film climaxes with a stage full of banjo players performing “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” with Earl Scruggs. The Washington Post film review called Bluegrass Country Soul “A New High.”

After a limited theatrical release in 1972, Bluegrass Country Soul virtually disappeared. Producer-Director Albert Ihde continued to look for national distribution, and a video release, to no avail. An unauthorized “pirated” VHS cassette of the film was widely circulated among bluegrass fans for years. Then, in 2006, Time Life Music released a DVD of Bluegrass Country Soul that received national distribution and sold out its run. However, the DVD was not distributed overseas where bluegrass is popular, particularly in Japan and Europe.

Recently, facing the threat of the sole surviving 35mm print fading away and being lost for all time, Ihde and his original partners took up the challenge of restoring the film. On November 2, 2019, during a ceremony at a special screening, a DCP (digital cinema package) of the newly restored film was donated to the permanent collection of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Owensboro, KY. Sales of the new, comprehensive box sets will help to defray the cost of the film restoration and the archival donation.

The year 2021 will mark the 50th anniversary of that incredible Labor Day festival, and this project will commemorate the many musicians who participated and contributed to the growth of bluegrass music. A percentage of the profits from these box sets will be donated to the International Bluegrass Music Association Foundation’s Trust Fund in the names of all the musicians and filmmakers involved.
