What is America's Blues?
America's Blues is an Award Winning feature length documentary that explores the tremendous impact that the Blues has had on our society, our culture, and the entertainment industry. The Blues has influenced nearly every form of American Music and sadly, aside from its part in the birth of Rock and Roll, it's influence often goes unrecognized. Beyond its musical impact, it has reached into so many other art forms, such as paintings, sculpture, literature and even television and film. It has even become the culture of entire cities and helped to put them on the map. If music were a color, it would be Blue.
