By JOE DONAHUE
The new movie “Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President” showcases the role music played in propelling Jimmy Carter from Georgia to the White House, and how his love for music gave him an unexpected edge in the presidential race.
Willie Nelson, Bono, Bob Dylan, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Jimmy Buffett, Roseanne Cash, Paul Simon, Andrew Young, and Madeleine Albright are just a few of the contributors giving interviews in the documentary. Rare, archival footage from live performances by Buffett, Nelson, etc. are also included in the documentary.
There will be three screenings this upcoming Labor Day weekend presented by the Berkshire International Film Festival and Shakespeare & Company on Thursday and Saturday at the Berkshire Drive-In at Shakespeare & Company campus and on Sunday at the Mahaiwe Drive-In at Simon’s Rock.
