Throughout his life, fiddler Henry Reed rarely ventured outside of Giles County, Virginia. There was not much reason to. Reed had his family, his fiddle and young musicians coming to him to learn his unique bow style and repertoire of rare tunes. One man in particular, Alan Jabbour, was fascinated with Reed's technique. Reed would become Jabbour's mentor, and in turn, Jabbour cataloged and recorded Reed's remarkable fiddling. Eventually, these songs would become a centerpiece of the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress. Today, Reed's legacy is maintained by Reed's children, Jabbour and young musicians like Chris Via, who founded the Henry Reed Festival which attracts musicians from across the globe each June. This film features rare recordings and photos as well as live musical performances and interviews with Reed's surviving children and his current fans and followers.
