"For The Love of the Music: The Club 47 Folk Revival", is a documentary exploring the rich history of Club 47, the iconic Cambridge, Massachusetts folk music mecca from 1958-1968. Narrated by Peter Coyote, it explores the influence the Club had on a unique group of folk musicians, from the evolution of the 60s folk revival to the singer-songwriter era. Featured are interviews with Joan Baez, Taj Mahal, Judy Collins, Tom Rush, Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, Jackie Washington, Jim Rooney, Peter Rowan and many more. The film features previously unreleased audio recordings and photographs of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Eric Von Schmidt and new performances from the still-performing stars of Club 47 with today's emerging folk performers, as the folk process continues.

Todd Kwait and Rob Stegman (co-producers/directors) met as freshmen at Boston University in the late 1970’s.

Mr. Kwait is a lawyer and businessman with a lifelong passion for film. This is his third motion picture. Todd wrote, produced and directed Chasin’ Gus’ Ghost which traced the history of Jug Band Music and won the award for Best Music Documentary at the Bare Bones Film Festival and the New York Film and Video Festival. Vagabondo, his second project, looks at the life of singer-songwriter Vince Martin. Mr. Kwait’s recording company Kingswood Records has two recent releases, “Snow Shadows: Songs of Vince Martin” by Alana Amram and the Rough Gems, and Sankofa’s “The Uptown Strut.”

Mr. Stegman has been producing and directing motion pictures for over 30 years, including corporate video, advertising, educational media and broadcast and cable television. His national network documentary productions include the biography Tim Allen: Just for Laughs and the History Channel’s Old Ironsides Returns to Sea. Mr. Stegman is the recipient of Communicator and Aurora awards for his political spot Make Way for Menino, and Golden CableAce Award for the media literacy series KnowTV and two Emmy Awards for his work at ABC-affiliate WCVB in Boston.
