Lead Belly Movie

This is a fun little clip from the 1976 Lead Belly film...it depicts a young Lead Belly at some speakeasy challenging another guitarist to a little cutting contest.

For the guitar parts, the director chose Dick Rosmini for all 12-string parts...it's too bad he didn't record more - he was a great player. Artie Traum dubs for the 6-string parts which are also fantastic.

A great little film that you can stream online if you look hard enough!
