Never Long Gone - Home Video

In 1971, two young musicians from Missoula, Montana took a trip in a van and began a journey that continues to this day. Against the backdrop of cultural change that swept the nation, a group of Montanans with talent, big dreams, and a tremendous sense of fun explored a sound that defied category and captivated audiences at home and across the country. As the band shares stories about working alongside musical greats like Bonnie Raitt and Charlie Daniels, playing to crowds that numbered in the tens of thousands, and surviving long years on the road, Never Long Gone offers an intimate portrait of a journey full of hope, loss and perseverance. With never before seen archival footage, national television performances and scenes from recent reunion concerts, the documentary tells the story of a musical family that embodied the magic of a time and remains as a centerpiece of Montana's musical tradition.
