An oddball folk band reunites decades following their career apex to celebrate the life of a deceased concert promoter alongside a number of other performers.

Noted folk musician-cum-concert promoter Irving Steinbloom passes away, leaving an entire community of musicians and fans in mourning. Determined to craft a memorial for his father befitting of his legacy, son Jonathan arranges for a concert headlined by a reunion of 1960s-era folk trio The Folksmen; comedic mishaps ensue when a number of other colorful acts from years past assemble for their special performance in New York City.
