Wed, 2017-04-05 15:21

I Am the Blues takes the audience on a musical journey through the swamps of the Louisiana Bay-ou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta and moonshine soaked BBQs in the North Mississippi Hills. The film visits blues musicians rooted in the genre's heyday, many now in their 80s, still living in the American deep south and touring the Chitlin’ Circuit. Let Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Little Freddie King, Lazy Lester, Bilbo Walker, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, RL Boyce, LC Ulmer, Lil’ Buck Sinegal and their friends awaken the blues in all of us.
