T Bone Burnett, a Punch Brother, half the Milk Carton Kids, Joan Baez and others celebrated the folk music that informs the Coen brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis" with a screening of the Showtime concert film "Another Day, Another Time" and a Q&A.
The film, which premieres tonight (Dec. 13), shows "50 years of history being passed back and forth," Burnett told the crowd at the Arclight theater in Hollywood. To a person, the musicians rejected the idea of a current folk music revival, only a change in platforms to get the music heard.
"I was not aware it went away," the Milk Carton Kids' Joey Ryan said. "I'm not aware of people not getting in a circle with fiddle and guitars and the circle being unbroken. The idea of a revival is an invention of journalists."
