“Clarksdale Blues” Documentary



We didn’t know what we were going to get. My father-in-law and I went to the Juke Joint Festival this past April with two things in mind: Enjoy the music, and film whatever and whoever we could. We wanted to soak up the festival and see if we could make something out of the footage afterward.
That weekend we interviewed whomever agreed to it, and we were surprised at some of the results. Most everyone was excited to talk to us, share their music, their art, their lives. And what we discovered in Clarksdale itself was a story larger than we could ever capture or tell in one weekend.

Many thanks to all the artists who allowed us to talk with them and film them perform.
