During “Festival”, just listening to Mike Bloomfield portray his youthful take on a scene that was nurtured on the stages of Newport, Rhode Island, gives us insight into the embryo of a brilliance that was begininng to discover and distinguish itself. My Newport recollections are beyond description. I was first escorted to the concerts by my guitar teacher, Dave Van Ronk, at the age of fourteen, who in turn introduced me to his mentor, the Reverend Gary Davis. Although neither artist is represented in this motion picture, there is not a musician portrayed who did not benefit from the amazing styling of these true folk and blues icons. We dedicate the showing of this great film to these great men.
