40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie

Magic Music is one of the most fondly remembered bands of the Boulder Revolution. Living in a makeshift camp up in the mountains in the early 1970s, they would delight local residents and university students with their original songs, acoustic instruments, and light harmonies; their growing popularity brought them to the brink of success more than once. Unfortunately, they never signed a record deal and eventually broke up in 1975.

Four decades later, one of their greatest fans, Boulder alumnus and acclaimed director Lee Aronsohn, tracked down the original Magic Music members.

Aronsohn brings the band’s always colorful – and sometimes poignant -- history to life in his documentary film, 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE.
