Idolised by Bob Dylan and later by Nick Cave, Adele and Joanna Newsom, folk blues singer and guitarist Karen Dalton was a charismatic figure in the fertile music scene of 1960s New York. A reluctant live performer and a fiercely independent artist who fought against industry demands and directives, the Texas-born, Oklahoma-raised Dalton led a difficult and unconventional life until her premature death in 1993.

Since most photographs and film footage of Dalton have been lost or destroyed, this long-awaited film draws on her recordings, and interviews with loved ones and collaborators, to build a rich portrait of a singularly gifted musician and her hauntingly beautiful voice - and a body of work that continues to grow in influence.

Screening as part of Doc'n Roll Film Festival. Event supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
