A Mighty Wind (2003) Music Soundboard

A Mighty Wind is a delightful mockumentary film, released in 2003, that takes a whimsical look at the world of folk music. Directed by Christopher Guest, the film follows the reunion concert of three folk bands from the 1960s, exploring the eccentricities of the characters and the tumultuous journey that led them to this momentous event.

The film features an all-star ensemble cast, with many familiar faces from Guest's previous mockumentaries. Eugene Levy portrays Mitch Cohen, a member of the influential folk trio The Folksmen, alongside Harry Shearer as Mark Shubb and Michael McKean as Jerry Palter. Together, the trio resurrects their long-dormant career to perform at the concert.

Another prominent folk group in the film is The New Main Street Singers, a nine-member group led by Terry and Laurie Bohner, played by John Michael Higgins and Jane Lynch, respectively. Their overzealous enthusiasm for folk music is both endearing and comedic, as they navigate their way through awkward harmonies and questionable fashion choices.

An integral part of the storyline revolves around the duo of Mitch and Mickey, played by Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara. Once in love and the darlings of folk music, their relationship had soured, and they had gone their separate ways. The reunion concert offers them a chance to confront their past and confront their lingering emotions. Levy and O'Hara's chemistry on screen is simply unmatched, providing both hilarious and heartfelt moments.

Throughout the film, the audience is introduced to various other characters who contribute to the rich tapestry of A Mighty Wind. The legendary Fred Willard plays Mike LaFontaine, the enthusiastic and slightly clueless TV host who interviews the bands and adds to the movie's comedic moments. Other notable actors in supporting roles include Ed Begley Jr., Jennifer Coolidge, and Parker Posey, who embody an array of quirky managers, promoters, and fans.

The music in A Mighty Wind is a true marvel. Written and composed by Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Eugene Levy, and their talented ensemble, the original songs capture the essence of the folk music era. From the catchy tunes of The Folksmen to the upbeat and eccentric melodies of The New Main Street Singers, the music is both satirical and sincere, paying homage to the legacy of folk music with a touch of parody.

For those who appreciate folk music or have a fondness for mockumentaries, A Mighty Wind is a must-see. With its stellar cast, brilliant writing, and heartfelt performances, the film offers a delightful exploration of the folk music scene. Whether you're a fan of Guest's previous works like This Is Spinal Tap or Best in Show or entirely new to his style, A Mighty Wind will have you laughing, tapping your toes, and wishing you could attend the reunion concert yourself.

If you're looking to relive the folk songs featured in the movie or discover them for the first time, you can play and download the soundtrack from various music platforms. So sit back, grab your headphones, and allow the sounds of A Mighty Wind to transport you to a whimsical world of folk music and hilarity.

And by the end you're all soaked, even the ladies...
And it was my idea to call them The Supreme Folk. Tying in the folk singing.
And the fairy tales have all been told
And you could Look at the camera and say, Hey, wha' happened?
Can I ?
For me it was just watching you.
Hi, everybody. Just be a second
I could be empathetic. I'm not sure what else I could do.
I got a friend, at NO AA, so we're going up in the Nimbus 7 Oceanographic Satellite
I have no time to explain Stagecraft 101 . This show starts in an hour.
I know this is a lot of pressure for you to be under
I was flashing back to the rush of adrenaline we used to get...
I'LL talk to him. I'm happy to. I gotta get him out of there.
I've got an idea. Let's get carnations and a beer stein and put them up here.
If we can get two dozen young people watching in the evening hours..
It has been a time of changes, but change is good. Change is Life.
It's called a microphone, and you'll get them. Don't worry.
Left my things there
Let the bridge of our love span the sea
Oh, a mighty wind's a blowing It's kicking up the sand
Oh, boy. Thank you very much!
Pick it!
So I said to the lady next to him:
To paraphrase an old joke: Knock, knock. Who's there?
We're gonna put a saddle on you folks. Not really.
Well, it's getting warmer now.
You can't say his name, can you?
It clicked. It clicked
Mighty Wind. Mighty Wind in C.
Remember? Yeah. Where they used to....
That's the cake. No, that's the dressing.
They don't have remotes. Yeah
...Alan's Barrows and Mark Shubb.
...all the groups that your dad represented
...because I met a certain Mr. Wiseman, who gave me a job in his shop
...Saturday, June 22...
...that I had never felt before
