Festival starts in


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 the moonshine-soaked BBQ's in the North Mississippi Hill Country. The filmmaker visits the last original blues devils, many in their 80’s, still living in the deep south, working without management and touring the Chitlin’ Circuit. Let Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Lazy Lester, Bilbo Walker, RL Boyce, Jimmy ’Duck’ Holmes, Lil Buck Sinegal, LC Ulmer and their friends awaken the blues in all of us.

Canadian-based filmmaker Daniel Cross will attend the film screening.
