Troubadours, a documentary chronicling the California singer/songwriter movement in the '70's, is among the films selected for the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Released by Concord Music Group, the documentary was produced by Eddie Schmidt and directed by Morgan Neville of Tremolo Productions. The U.S. Documentary Competition focuses on sixteen films that "confront the subjects that define our time".

Don Kirshner, the veteran music mogul who shepherded the work of monstrously talented young songwriters to the top of the pop charts in the 1960s, launched the career of the Monkees, then made his face familiar to millions of rock fans as impresario of his late-night live-music TV series in the 1970s, died Monday of heart failure in Boca Raton, Fla., where he had lived for several years, his family members said. He was 76.

The highly-acclaimed documentary Troubadours: The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter has been released to a select number of theaters across the U.S. in January, February and March of 2011.

Directed Morgan Neville and produced by Eddie Schmidt of Tremolo Productions, and released by Concord Music Group, the film is fresh from its highly-acclaimed reception at The Sundance Film Festival. It has been hailed by critics in the LA Times, Variety, The Globe (the Salt Lake Community College newspaper), USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal, alike.
