For hundreds of years acoustic guitars have been made the same way, from the same type of tree. Today, because of extreme logging, this tree is on the brink extinction, and with it, the acoustic guitar as we know it. MUSICWOOD is an adventure-filled journey, a political thriller with music at its heart. An unusual band of the most famous guitar-makers in the world (Bob Taylor of Taylor guitars, Chris Martin of Martin Guitars and Dave Berryman of Gibson Guitars) travel together into the heart of one of the most primeval rainforests on the planet. Their mission: to negotiate with Native American loggers and change the way this forest is logged before it’s too late. Features performances from acoustic virtuosos such as Kaki King, Yo La Tengo, The Antlers and Steve Earle.
