Born in Chicago

#sxsw #Chicago

The documentary Born in Chicago is the story of first generation blues performers who had made their way to Chicago from the Mississippi Delta and their ardent and unexpected followers – young white, middle class kids who followed this evocative music to smoky clubs deep in Chicago’s ghettos. Hear from the musicians who learned the art of the blues at the feet of the masters and went on to make the music their own.
