American Epic - The Soundtrack


American Epic, a film series produced by Allison McGourty, Duke Erikson and Director Bernard MacMahon, explores the pivotal recording journeys at the height of the Roaring Twenties, when music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology captured the breadth of American music and discovered the artists that would shape our world.

American Epic is an historic, multi-media endeavor that includes:

A three-part historical documentary broadcast series that uncovers the untold story of early American recorded music
Executive produced by T Bone Burnett, Robert Redford, and Jack White
Narrated by Robert Redford
Features ground-breaking, untold stories with never before seen archival film and rare photographs and interviews with the surviving family members of iconic American musicians
A feature length performance film: The American Epic Sessions
Features Jack White, Elton John, Nas, Alabama Shakes, Willie Nelson and more revisiting these historical songs
These sessions were recorded on a restored recording machine from the period. Powered by a pulley and weight, it is the only recording system of this kind left in the world!
