BOULDER, Colo. (January 29, 2019) –
The Boulder

Award-winning singer-songwriter and former lead singer of The Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan, will make a special
appearance for the film Echo in The
at BIFF’s Closing Night on Sunday, March 3 at the Boulder Theater. This special screening of Echo

starring Jakob Dylan, features the sounds of
LA’s famous Laurel Canyon music scene in the
‘60s—including music from The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas & The Papas and more.

“We’re honored to welcome Jakob Dylan to the Festival
this year,” said Robin Beeck, BIFF’s Executive Director. “Echo In The Canyon provides an up close and personal look at the
way musicians and their personas ultimately shaped the American music scene. Mr.
Slater’s film presents us with the opportunity to hear personal stories from
some of our favorite musicians, and to hear those same songs sung by an impressive
lineup of contemporary singer/songwriters. It’s the perfect finale to an
amazing lineup of music-themed films at BIFF 2019.”

In The Canyon
 is a look at how The Byrds, The
Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas & The Papas set the stage
for the LA’s Laurel Canyon music scene, and how the echo of these artists’
creations reverberated between each other and ultimately across to London, where
it altered the course of The Beatles themselves. Jakob Dylan interviews the
artists who wrote the songs and discovers why they were written and what life
was like in Laurel Canyon in the years before psychedelia and the birth of the

singer-songwriter era. He discovers fascinating,
never-before-heard personal details behind the recordings and those who made
them popular.

The songs from that era provide an entry point as Dylan and
a new generation of artists (Beck, Regina Spektor, Cat Power, Norah Jones and
others) interpret and perform the songs paying homage to, and in many cases in
front of, their authors.
