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.
