The film is centered around a star-studded benefit show for Sizemore and his wife earlier this year, while they were both undergoing treatment for cancer. Herschel seems to have beaten his disease, and Joyce is doing well in continuing treatment.
Bowman tells the story of Herschel’s musical life and enduring influence on bluegrass mandolin through interviews with some of the top artists in our music, many of them collaborators, peers and friends of Sizemore’s.
An October 12 premier is scheduled as a part of Blue Ridge Film and Music Festival at the Buchanan Theater in Buchanan, VA.
