Willie Nelson's 4th of July Celebration

1979 / 100min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: YABO YABLONSKY

Celebrate the birth of our great nation with Willie and Waylon and the boys in c. 1974 College Station, Texas with this all-star concert jamboree, emceed by a hysterically sloshed Leon Russell! Our host plays the hits from Shotgun Willie, fiend-with-a-fiddle Doug Kershaw capers and gambols, The Lost Gonzo Band leads a swingin’ “London Homesick Blues” singalong, and Jennings brings the earthbound stomp. It’s just about everything you need except the skinny ditch weed jay and sixer of Lone Star.

Willie Nelson's 4th of July Celebration is screening as part of the series 4th of July at Metrograph: The Concert Film. Click here for more info.
