I Am the Blues
Directed by Daniel Cross
Canada/USA | Documentary | 2015 | 106 min
Print source: Eyesteel Films

Director Daniel Cross will be in attendance for the screening.
He and Robert Mugge will participate in a panel discussion on Saturday at 5:00pm, moderated by Bill Ellis.

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.
