Rate this:
Everyone knows the blues came from Mississippi. Here's an update: They never left. This compelling new DVD documents the heart of Mississippi's current blues scene. This is the intensely personal music recorded was captured by two self-proclaimed blues fanatics - Jeff Konkel and Roger Stolle - on a weeklong road trip across the state. The DVD explores the thriving underbelly of a dying American art form in the land where it began by filming real-deal blues performances in its home, where it is most comfortable and authentic. Professionally filmed largely on-location in the region's juke joints, house parties and living rooms. Featured musicians include James 'T-Model' Ford, Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes, Robert 'Bilbo' Walker, Wesley 'Junebug' Jefferson, Terry 'Harmonica' Bean and others.
