On the Trail of Americana Music

Although the Americana Music movement began in Nashville, Tennessee, the genre has spread to the UK and Australia, Europe and Israel.

One family in Australia is leading the movement there - the Chambers family; Kasey Chambers was recently inducted into the Australian Music Hall of Fame while her equally talented brother has moved his family to Nashville to establish himself as a music producer there.

Emerging artists from the UK, Canada and Australia converge on Nashville for the annual Americana Festival in the hope of breaking it in the USA - but how easy is it? With the pandemic curtailing live music gigs, how do musicians keep on performing and making their music? What does the future hold?

With over 30 exclusive interviews and exciting performances, this is a music documentary that explores the lives of musicians and an industry that is in crisis.
