I Am The Blues

A musical journey down to the bayous of Mississippi: home of the alligator, the crawfish and the real juke joints of blues guitars.

Meet the last original devils, the living legends of blues – Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Lazy Lester, Little Freddie King – many of them in their eighties, still living in the deep south and plucking with even more heart than when they started . Down to the Mississippi crossroads and on a musical travelogue from front porches to church halls, sharing stories and sliding their strings to create one of the most authentic moving tributes to a musical form that has immeasurably influenced music and popular culture worldwide.
