Musicwood: Taylor, Martin, Gibson Guitar Search for Sitka Spruce

Posted by Bill Esler | Posted: 11/03/2013 12:00PM

 

The Musicwood documentary follows Bob Taylor (Taylor Guitars), Chris Martin (Martin Guitars), and Dave Berryman of Gibson Guitars - as they unite as a group, drop their competitive differences and travel together into the heart of the largest coastal temperate rain forest in the world. They have to negotiate with Native American loggers to save the centuries old Sitka Spruce trees, before it's too late. The film documents the guitar-makers' struggle to build a relationship with the Native Americans that acknowledges the injustices of their past but fights to preserve the forest for our future. Featuring music by The Antlers, Steve Earle, Kaki King, Lambchop, Turin Brakes, and Yo La Tengo.
