"Music Inn": A Documentary Feature

Northampton Center for the Arts (P.O. Box 631, Northampton MA 01061)


​This elegiac documentary charts the legacy of the Music Inn, a 1950s haven for jazz and folk artists who gathered each summer to hone their skills and explore their musical roots via jam sessions and discussions. Through interviews and archival footage, Music Inn traces the inn's founders and tracks the enduring influence of the famed Berkshire Mountains site that eventually became America's first concentrated jazz school.

This screening of "Music Inn" (dir. Ben Barenholtz) will start with a wine and cheese reception and a discussion with the film's producer, George Schuller.
