Film Summary

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, musician, poet and athlete Ben Weaver set out to ride his bicycle unsupported down the country’s most formidable physical break, the Continental Divide, offering free concerts to those who live, work, and play along this iconic American corridor. Music For Free is the story of his journey to celebrate the people of these communities while pedaling 2800 miles carrying his banjo and guitar. By sharing his music and poetry, Weaver encounters the hidden soul of humanity and uncovers clues that reveal how deeply connected we all are despite what is often portrayed by mainstream media.
