A variety of documentaries focusing on notable music artists and events will premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 24 through May 5 in New York City. Ex-Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, Linda Ronstadt, late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence and the 1969 Woodstock festival are among the subjects of new movies that will be screened at the fest.

Wyman’s life is profiled in The Quiet One, a film that features unseen footage, personal photos and memorabilia from the 82-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s expansive archives.

Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice looks at the lauded singer’s life and career, and includes interviews with musical friends and collaborators including Jackson Browne, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris. Following the premiere screening, Sheryl Crow will give a performance paying tribute to Ronstadt.

Mystify: Michael Hutchence looks at the INXS singer’s career triumphs, as well as his personal struggles and tragic death from an apparent suicide at age 37. Two of the Australian rocker’s former girlfriends, pop star Kylie Minogue and model Helena Christiansen, appear in the film.

Woodstock: Three Days That Defined a Generation is a new flick that looks back at the star-studded festival in conjunction with its 50th anniversary. The movie includes new recollections of people who attended and took part in the concert extravaganza.
