Andrus on Hudson is hosting a free screening of the film Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me.
In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. He thought it would last 5 weeks, instead it went for 151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half. What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a "Goodbye Tour." The film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen's progressing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice. Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Taylor Swift are a few of the musicians featured in this documentary.
