American Epic – The first time America heard itself

Jack White and T Bone Burnett are producing a documentary about the American recording industry during the 1920s and 1930s.

The film, which Burnett says is co-produced by Robert Redford and the BBC, will be called American Epic. It is an ambitious project that has been seven years in the making.


American Epic is a multi-media arts project based around the history of American music, which includes a documentary series, a worldwide concert tour, music releases, a book, an exhibition, and an educational outreach program.
Allison McGourty is the creator, producer and co-writer of American Epic.  Bernard MacMahon is the creator, director and writer of American Epic. Together they co-founded Lo-Max Films and launched the independent label Lo-Max Records.
