Meet the hidden musicians, who hone their skills in corner bars, coffee shops and church basements while raising families and participating in the life of communities all over the United States. This feature-length documentary explores music not as a mass-mediated product but as a meaningful cultural practice, a way for people to express themselves in whatever ways they feel comfortable. Interviews, rehearsals, performances and informal situations are being recorded in local music scenes from Maine to California and in musical genres from bluegrass to grand opera. The film showcases the scenic as well as musical diversity of a vast country.
