"A touching, clear-eyed and rewarding history."

- New York Times

"The Travellers is a great documentary...about the sheer force of music that was born out of an authentic social movement."

- Globe & Mail

Tells the story of the four idealistic young left-wingers who founded Canada’s historic folk group, The Travellers. Mentored and encouraged by folk legend Pete Seeger, The Travellers’ songs cemented cultural unity across a young, sprawling country. Featuring classic songs and rare archival footage from the early days of television, the film is an epic tour of folk music, Cold War politics, and the growth and disillusionment of the Left.
