I want to head back to one more video from the Wasn't That a Time documentary on The Weavers reuntion. As I mentioned, the film is more than just a concert film and one of the treats is watching the rehearsals that leads up to the show at Carnegie Hall, and this is one of the highlights from the movie.
It begins with singer/songwriter Holly Near talking about what the Weavers and in particular Ronnie Gilbert meant to her as an inspiration to her career, and then we see some of the behind-the-scenes work of Gilbert taking the lead on a soaring song. It's a really nice moment, but what it all leads to is special -- when Near and Gilbert sit down to talk and by chance eventually begin an impromptu duet of one of Near's moving songs, which takes them both by surprise
