A musician, documentarian, scholar, and founding member of the influential folk revival group New Lost City Ramblers, Mike Seeger (1933-2009) spent more than 50 years collecting, performing and commemorating the culture and folk music of white and Black Southerners, which he called "music from the true vine." Biographer Bill Malone explores the life and musical contributions of folk artist Seeger, son of musicologists Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger and brother of folksingers Pete and Peggy Seeger.
