I Am The Blues
Directed by Daniel Cross
I AM THE BLUES takes the audience on a musical journey through the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta and Moonshine soaked BBQs in the North Mississippi Hill Country. The film visits blues musicians rooted in the genre's heyday, many 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.
From juke joints to church halls, up the mountain and down to the bayou, I AM THE BLUES travels the back roads with the last of the blues legends.
Cast: Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Henry Gray, Jimmy Holmes, Lil' Buck Sinegal, Lazy Lester, Carol Fran, LC Ulmer, Little Freddy King
One of the best music documentaries ever. Beautifully shot, thoughtful, lyrical. Lets the players tell their own stories. Mainline to American history; the beautiful, the ugly, and the true. don't miss it.
