I Am The Blues

I Am The Blues Release Date: July 12, 2017

Diving deep into America’s last generation of blues devils, the movie I Am The Blues takes the audience on an enthralling journey through the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta, and moonshine-soaked BBQs in North Mississippi Hill Country to visit with many unsung living legends of blues, including 83-year old Bobby Rush – whose latest recording, “Porcupine Meat,” won him his first Grammy for Traditional Blues Album (February 2017).

Crisscrossing unseen byways and back roads, I Am The Blues highlights a generation of veteran blues musicians rooted from the genre’s heyday, many of whom are now in their 80s, still living in the American deep south and touring the Chitlin’ Circuit, including Barbara Lynn, Little Freddie King, Lazy Lester, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Bilbo Walker, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, RL Boyce, LC Ulmer and Lil’ Buck Sinegal.
