Mulligan Stew June 4th 2016-Bobby Rush, Daniel Cross, and Terry Wickham Interviews

DSC_0153This week on Mulligan Stew, Terry interviews blues legend Bobby Rush and award-winning Canadian filmmaker Daniel Cross about his feature documentary, I Am The Blues.

I Am the Blues – Trailer from EyeSteelFilm on Vimeo.

I Am The Blues takes you on a booze and blues-fueled 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. Cross visits the last original, 80-year-old blues devils (including Bobby Rush, LC Ulmer, Carol Fran, Barbara Lynn and many more) who are working without management and touring the Chitlin’ Circuit.

Cross is the founder of a prestigious, non-fiction production company called EyeSteelFilm, and he first made his mark by directing feature length films about homelessness. Cross will talk about writing and directing the film, and Bobby Rush will talk about having his long and successful career become the focus of a documentary.

The film is set to premiere in Toronto on June 3, and is playing at the Medicine Hat Public Library Theatre on June 20 and at the Sled Island Film Festival in Calgary on June 26.
