The greatness of Folkstreams

If you don’t know about it and love great film making that gives you a glimpse into other worlds; experiences; cultures and people then you really should know about the Folk Streams website.

My current favourite is ‘Give My Poor Heart Ease: Mississippi Delta Bluesmen‘. The description from the site:

An account of the blues experience through the recollections and performances of B.B. King, Son Thomas, inmates from Parchman prison, a barber from Clarkesdale, a salesman from Beale Street, and others.

  1. I saw Dr. Ferris speak at the Don Gibson theater in Shelby, N.C. He is just as authentic as the blues. Fine speaker, writer, and an expert in his craft.

    I just posted about him also.
