Dave Stewart: The Ringmaster General captures Dave Stewart through the whirlwind recording process at John and Martina McBride's Blackbird Studios, of two explosive albums The Blackbird Diaries and The Ringmaster General. This tongue-in-cheek documentary follows Stewart’s adventures in songwriting, letting the viewer witness his eccentric but compelling methods of creativity.
This extraordinary documentary features contributions from Bob Dylan, Alison Krauss, Reece Witherspoon, Martina McBride, Colbie Caillat, The Secret Sisters, Joss Stone, Stevie Nicks, Jessie Baylin, Diane Birch and Orianthi.
The road that led to The Ringmaster General begins in London with the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Dave Stewart was grounded there with no hope of getting home to Los Angeles. A fortuitous encounter in a vintage guitar shop opened Dave’s eyes to the stories of a guitar’s previous owner, an eccentric country and western star named Red River Dave. From there, a chance flight to Nashville and the start of a fascinating journey of exploration of this city of music.
