Legends of the Canyon: Classic Artists
LEGENDS OF THE CANYON delivers the story of the advent of rock music spawned in the garden of the Hollywood Hills, Laurel Canyon. Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas and the Papas, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt and many other great artists of the era were all inhabitants of Laurel Canyon and brought to life the anthems of a generation from the hills of this idyllic, commune-like setting in the late 1960s. Their songs continue to inspire and LEGENDS OF THE CANYON takes you there. Adding depth, color and authenticity to the film, famed rock photographer Henry Diltz (CSNY’s official photographer) contributes a variety of original photographs, some never before exhibited as well as rare footage shot amongst the musicians that were the tribe of the Canyon. This CLASSIC ARTISTS film recalls that innocent time in intimate interviews with many of the great artists themselves, revealing the true tales of when dreams of peace, harmony and history-changing music echoed through the hills of Laurel Canyon and around the world.
