Hi Uri, 

Thanks so much for reaching out and letting us know a little about The Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival. 

The documentary is a fantastic watch, and we can only hope to bring more attraction to the festival so that it can flourish and grow. I am sure a lot of our community will be glad to find out about it, if they hadn't already known.
