Bush has been a seminal fixture in the contemporary bluegrass scene and the new documentary tells his story from his ’60s roots to his time as a member of New Grass Revival and Strength In Numbers to his current status as an icon. Sam influenced many musicians and we see many of them in the trailer including Chris Thile of Punch Brothers and Paul Hoffman of Greensky Bluegrass. Take a look:

Tickets for Nashville screenings of the film are available here. Look for more screenings to be announced soon.
