Broward Folk Club Rings in New Membership Year with Folk Spoof A Mighty Wind
The Broward Folk Club will ring in another year of membership Sunday at Cinema Paradiso. Never heard of the Broward Folk Club? It's a non-profit dedicated to promoting folk and acoustic music, and it holds open mics throughout the year as well as "jam in the park" events. The group will show A Mighty Wind, the folk mockumentary by those who brought us This Is Spinal Tap and which features mockumentary staples Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Michael McKean, and Parker Posey, among others. The movie follows three folk groups (The Folksmen, The New Main Street Singers, and Mitch & Mickey) as they prepare for the festival. If you've ever seen Best In Show, Waiting for Guffman, or This is Spinal Tap, you can anticipate how the folk movement would be incredibly ripe for Christopher Guest's brand of satire.
