Echo In The Canyon is the illuminating new documentary film directed by Andrew Slater that explores the beginnings of the Laurel Canyon music scene (1965-1967) through the stories of those who lived it, and the artists who carry its influence to this day. The film is accompanied by a soundtrack celebrating the music of that era. The soundtrack features new studio recordings of timeless songs by The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas and more, as interpreted by Jakob Dylan along with artists from the film including Fiona Apple, Beck, Jade Castrinos, Cat Power, Eric Clapton, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young. The Belcourt Theatre is hosting two special screenings of the film on Thursday, June 27th including post-screening discussions with Slater and Dylan and performances by Dylan, Castrinos & the Echo In The Canyon Band (a few tickets still remain for the 10:15 showing). The documentary will open at the Belcourt in July for a regular run and opening date will be announced soon. More info here.
