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 Moonshine soaked BBQs in the North Mississippi Hill Country. Visiting 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.Written by
This is not so much a documentary as an invitation to a party with Bobby Rush as a casual guide. There's no discernible structure to the film, and the various players come and go - some not properly introduced until the final reel -but it is nonetheless a tremendous joy simply to be allowed to spend a little time with each and every person. Though many in this group are 80 years old and older, all but one appear to still have both their talent and their wit.
