    This video traces the forgotten roots and celebrates the continuing legacy of Blues music in the Mississippi Delta, interweaving rare archival footage of the South's sharecropping era with performances by Blues veterans Muddy Waters, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James and Howlin' Wolf. Writer/artist George Pratt serves as our guide, discussing the folk roots of Blues music with the few remaining itinerant performers and illustrating this cultural legacy through his remarkable photos and ink drawings. The result is an intimate and lively portrait of the Delta Blues and the land that shaped them.
