Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda
Narrated by Robbie Robertson, A Vision Shared documents the lives and influences of musical folk artists Woody Guthrie and Huddie Ledbetter ( or Leadbelly). Footage of their own personal stories is complemented by performances by fanatical popular stars, inspired still -- decades later -- by the original music of Guthrie and Leadbelly. Including performances by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and more, this collection offers renditions of folk favorites by artists who have paved ground musically in their own rights.
