Dec. 08--The Coen brothers put the spotlight on bluegrass music with "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Their new movie, "Inside Llewyn Davis," is bound to do the same for another slice of tuneful Americana: the early 1960s folk movement that flourished in the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village.
This lovingly detailed character study of a folk singer who values credibility more than commercialism opens Dec. 20, but you can get a jump on its graceful songs by listening to the soundtrack or watching "Another Day, Another Time," a celebration of the movie's music at 10 p.m. Friday on Showtime.
Guests include "Inside Llewyn Davis" star Oscar Isaac; the film's associate music producer, Marcus Mumford (husband of costar Carey Mulligan); Joan Baez; Punch Brothers; and Detroit icons Patti Smith and Jack White. Be sure to discover "Fare Thee Well," a ballad that will break your heart and make it sing simultaneously.
