Chuck Leavell documentary to be shown in Georgia theaters starting Nov. 6

‘The Tree Man’ will play in 50 theaters nationwide

The multi-faceted life of Chuck Leavell – former member of The Allman Brothers Band, longtime touring keyboardist and musical director for The Rolling Stones, dedicated conservationist – is explored in vivid depth in the new documentary, “Chuck Leavell: The Tree Man.”

The film, directed by Allen Farst, includes interviews with numerous musicians with whom Leavell has played with throughout the decades – Eric Clapton to John Mayer, Eric Church to David Gilmour – as well as details his quieter life with Rose Lane, his wife of 47 years, on the 4,000-plus acres of Charlane Plantation, outside of Macon.
