ROAD SONGS: A PORTRAIT OF ROBBIE ROBERTSON (52')
GENRE: MUSIC & ARTIST PROFILE



One of the pop music's legendary musicians, Robbie Robertson's 'noise' had been heard, loved and respected worldwide for over four decades. Robertson, who is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is one of the most influential guitarists and singer/songwriters in rock history. With archival film footage (including The Last Waltz by Martin Scorsese) representing all periods of Robertson's varied career. Robertson's work with Bob Dylan and The Band transformed the face of American music from its Southern blues/rock roots into something called electric music. From his first gigs with Ronnie Hawkins in the '50s to the legendary days of Bob Dylan and the Basement Tapes, Robertson had played an integral part in the development of rock music.
