“The film colorfully captures the hall and the city, as well as reams of music spanning more than a century in styles.” The Austin Chronicle


For 50 years the Preservation Hall Jazz Band has played to keep the traditions of New Orleans jazz alive, both at home and on tour around the world. Along the way, they have brought in collaborators of all musical stripes to play, honor, and reinterpret America’s first true art form. Louisiana Fairytale documents their collaboration with American rock band My Morning Jacket, showing a legendary group of New Orleans musicians passing on traditions and inspiring a new generation. (Danny Clinch, 2011, 60 min.)
