“This movie should not be missed. It is a gift on so many levels….this is an invaluable glimpse into the past, and a living record of the blues as it was, and as these greats lived it.”
–Barry Kerzner, American Blues Scene
“Pure magic… For blues fans, these are irreplaceable moments.”
–Daniel Eagan, Film Journal
“Heartache never sounded so good.”
–Chris Knight, National Post
Embark on a musical pilgrimage from the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou to the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta and the moonshine-soaked BBQs in the North Mississippi Hill Country. I AM THE BLUES travels the backroads of the deep south with the blues musicians rooted in the genre’s heyday – many now in their 80s – and still touring the Chitlin’ Circuit. Let 2017 GRAMMY Award winner 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.
